After spotting a butterfly I hadn’t seen in the garden before, I went out to see what it was up to !
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. I NEED autumn colour.
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!
Today I thought I would share a collage of images taken a few days ago in my elder sister’s pretty little garden. Isn’t it nice?
This is what I found in the garden today. I don’t know the names of the single ones, but the doubles are Albertine and Champagne Moment.
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. 🙂
I had another stroke of luck when the gardener came and not only cut the lawn but planted most of the new purchases. 🙂
Below is a collage of some of those I did get.
I will share more of them on another day.
Here is a collage of what’s out in my garden this morning. A bit rain spoiled in places though.
Bottom left is the Astrantia I was telling you of Jill Izzard. Passed it’s best but you can see the colour. It is small and I planted it last year as a young plant from the nursery.
The little rose is Ballerina.
I took a stroll aground my garden to see what was out. Quite a lot really!
The rose above is Albertine and I do wish you could smell it… absolutely gorgeous.
I have decided to start my Blog again as the old one was so out of date.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.
