The weather has changed for the worse in our part of the world, well its rather wet. Being honest we do rather need this rain. Listening to the long range forecast I think we are going to have this sort of weather for the foreseeable future!
One thing our warm, and mainly dry, spring has produced is an abundance of lush foliage. Our Hosta’s have been prolific in leaf growth…trouble is the snails and slugs have been having a real feast. We were beginning to think that the flowers would arrive after all the leaves had been reduced to lace – however the one above has managed to thrust its stem through the leaves as it should. By the way that little Pink flower above is Herb Robert. Cherished in the meadows as a lovely wild flower but considered a weed in gardens……. but still very welcome in ours.
So with the weather very much on our minds I thought I would reflect on some colourful floral wonders we stumbled upon on sunny Sunday.
So some sunny memories to recall as we reflect upon what a wonderful but strange seasonal autumn, winter and spring we have enjoyed… now I imagine we pay for it!
I guess I will not be needing these for a week or two…
