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.  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!

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I have decided to start my Blog again as the old one was so out of date.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™‚
