A sunny Summers Day….


A Summers Flower Meadow

My preference is usually for a woodland walk, no matter the season or weather….but today the Wild Flower Meadows were too big a magnet to resist. The scent from the herbs as you brushed past to which you added a warm sun from a blue sky with fluffy clouds and it all seemed perfect..




Nor is our garden to be left out in the progress to summer….. everything seems to be coming on with a rush…

Hosta are just coming into flower…


Slugs that have been in hiding are now delighting in chomping their way thru the leaves. Our blue dwarf Hosta that usually are normally a month or more behind  the bigger whites, but not this season. Honeysuckle is starting to flower along with Roses and border Geraniums.  It is also the time for the Bees and insects are busy  harvesting nectar and pollen and there is a constant buzz amongst the shrubs…there are of course Spiders equally anxious to catch a meal.

With favourable weather, garden or countryside, its a grand start to summer… its also grand to be out and about
