Garden

Images from our garden taken this afternoon - Shirley's newly blooming hibiscus - dappled sunlight on the trunk of the thirty foot horsechestnut tree that began as a conker in 1987 - a sky full of apples on our ancient apple tree - the grave of Blizzard the cat with its gnome guard - blue hydrangea - reflection in our bird bath. Loveliness is close if we only remember to look. And here we are three miles from the centre of one of England's great industrial cities...

  1. 'Loveliness is close if we only remember to look.' How true and how often we don't remember. Lovely photos.

  3. at least we know from your last post how you keep it so green YP. I'm not sitting on on your lawn!

    I tried to keep in the spirit of those earlier commenters but was unable to recall any porno stories relating to hyrdrangas. I have led a sheltered life.

  5. Nice pics-- I love hydrangeas (v. plentiful in New England as well, and just now blooming). Thanks for your recent comments on our blog-- I just found them as I had changed a setting to "moderate" against spam.

  7. The gnome looks like he has been caught offering little gnomes some sweeties.

    The photograph is a capture of fleeting beauty that can only be caught once.
    To keep it is a treasure.
