I've washed my hair, sorted out clothes for tomorrow ( a family christening ) and there's an almond, raspberry and white chocolate tray bake heating up nicely in the oven. So I thought I'd post the last few photos I took at the Himalyan Gardens. The one above shows the magnolia floating sculpture in the background and a rather beautiful heron near the water's edge.
This sculpture's stunning. It looks like a sycamore seed, but from this angle it could almost be an angel's wing or a bird's wing. So graceful.
I loved the drifts of colour from these flowers. There's something very pleasing about broad, generous swathes of planting, maybe because we're so used to see small numbers of flowers in our (usually) small gardens.
Back on home ground I've been busy - between showers of rain - tidying and re-potting, planting a few more verbena seeds and pulling up Yarrow as it's self-seeding all over the front garden. I've eaten the first few strawberries from my tubs, and there're lots of green berries waiting to ripen. Plus, courgettes are fattening nicely, another week or so and I'll be picking the first of them.
Right, that cake's about ready to come out of the oven, so I'd better get on.
Moved from a garden-less city flat in the South West to a Yorkshire village in 2016. I now have a garden ... of sorts.
