This is the 300th post in this blog …
I started out looking to record a journey to serenity … I am still travelling but life is pretty serene in most aspects these days and when it gets a bit pear shaped I can cope much better with it … usually.
I loved this pretty mainly purple garden when I passed it the other day – it contains some of my favourite flowers – alliums and aquilegia (granny’s bonnet) and it just looked spectacular as an example of an old cottage garden … simply lovely.
Twined through the grasses and nettles in this roadside verge is another favourite – a purple vetch
and here with the now almost over bluebells pretty little white starry flowers
So there is a little 300th post bouquet of garden and wild flowers – this next one isn’t quite showing it’s full glory yet – I cut out the dead stems from this plant in Evelyn’s garden the other week and now these huge flower buds have appeared:
It is amazing how much the plants have come on in a short space of time for being tidied and weeds removed – there are now two huge red peonies about to open, an azalea in flower and aquilegia filling a few corners here and there along side bright yellow poppies.
And going full circle – I find myself constantly looking at unused buildings sizing them up with a curious eye to my future … isn’t this pretty? and complete with a weather vane; I think this was possibly a granary.
I now have several variations on the TickTock layout so hopefully next week we might be able to consider some cost ideas before going back to the owner … fingers crossed
