GARDEN WALK ON 1st AUGUST

After spotting a butterfly I hadn’t seen in the garden before, I went out to see what it was up to !

Brimstone Butterfly

It was a brimstone and was investigating mainly the marigolds, which although colourful are the bane of my life as they have spread all over everywhere.

While I was out there I did my usual walk around the garden to see what else was out. There isn’t much there now as most of my flowers have gone over. I really need to do something about the gap in the seasons here.ย  I NEED autumn colour.

Cosmos

The Cosmos are still gorgeous. And of course the gardians of the garden are always there looking very affable… but cross them at your peril!

VISIT TO A LOCAL NURSERY

I had a nice surprise yesterday when my neice suggested we pay a visit to a local nursery for some new plants for the garden and for pots around the place. I had no idea what I wanted but enjoyed having a good look round. Of course I bought far more than I realsied I needed and now find that I still need more. ๐Ÿ™‚

I had another stroke of luck when the gardener came and not only cut the lawn but planted most of the new purchases. ๐Ÿ™‚

Below is a collage of some of those I did get. Image

I will share more of them on another day.

New Start

I have decided to start my Blog again as the old one was so out of date. My intention is not necessarily to publish every day but only when I have something to share. My photographs, places I have been, classes I have attended and such.

Enjoy! ๐Ÿ™‚
