No doubt you’re all eagerly anticipating the hundreds of holiday snaps I’m planning to unleash. Well, maybe not hundreds, but there’s definitely over a hundred ready to post up here. But before we get to that, I just took a few photos on the mobile here to show you what’s been bursting into flower in our absence – and has thankfully hung on long enough for us to appreciate.
The peony – of course:
An assortment of aquilegia (is that the right collective noun?):
The alliums are starting to get in on the act (bit out of focus, sorry):
Variegated alyssum – how zingy is that yellow?!
Ceanothus – the one at the back; the one at the front has buds, but no flowers yet:
And a pink scabious, and behind it you can just see a small gooseberry:
Plans are afoot for this year, involving removal of the remaining strips of grass. Also I have a photographic project, but more of that in another post, as it relates to one of the gardens we visited in Cornwall.
