Thankfully the year has turned once again …
I have left behind my January funk
Today I was greeted by these Iris “Katherine Hodgkin”
Sadly, last night the lunar eclipse was hidden by cloud.
To-night, the moon peeped out briefly.
Bright blessing to you all.
Esther is sad that no images have been here for a while
Thank you for the nudge Esther –
This is especially for you.
Massive down-pours of rain throughout the day
Trust me – Our garden here in “Wet Wales” doesn’t need any more rain
We have had quite enough – thank you very much.
More rain on the way tomorrow.
If all the freezing weather we have had this winter kills my baby plants,
Why doesn’t it kill my baby slugs?
With the wet weather we have been having recently – these flowers, waiting to go onto the compost heap
Have truly reached “the end of the line”
What did happen to the last couple of months?
I think just being really busy happened to me.
And here we are a week into November.
Hopefully I will be less busy and can get back into posting an image nearly every day again
It wont be long before the Autumn Equinox.
And while we are still enjoying the most lovely Indian Summer
The Year is creeping towards Autumn
And the dew is lying heavy in the mornings.
Downpours of rain all day to-day,
So this mornings rose, now looks like this.
Also I am still unsure if Blotanical is picking up my new feed.
So if anyone finds this via Blotanical could you let me know!
I wish I had “smelly-vision” so that I could share with you
The delightful scent of the peony.
It has 5 blooms on it –
Which is such a treat, as it was chopped down last year
Today I was
At the computer
Creating greetings cards
From my images,
For a fair next week.
But that was OK as it was very cold and wet outside.
Don’t forget to leave your comments on yesterdays “captions invited”
(Otherwise Susan will have nothing to pick a winner from)
Have a great weekend.
One of my Wednesday gardens has a wonderful old pear tree.
It no longer produces much fruit –
But, it is a thing of beauty.
In my eyes.
We have a very large weeping willow at the bottom of the garden, and today from the house it definitely had a green tinge.
When I went to look – the leaves were starting to sprout. The world around here is “greening up”
The promised snow did not arrive, and we had an altogether glorious day – which was nice as I went back to work (as a gardener).
This is the first dandelion that I have spotted in the garden – last year I noticed them for GBBD, 15th March.
Visited my neighbors land to-day to get some of these beautiful branches.
(Thank you Sandra)
Here is some folk lore about how the pussy willow got its name
My garden pond on a wet February afternoon ….
It is 5.45 pm and there is still some light in the sky.
The evenings are starting to draw out.
No1 Son and No1 Daughter-in-Law are visiting, and gave me a new lens for my camera.
How happy am I?
