'Twere the moon what done it
Because the weather has been so miserable I haven't seen her for quite a few weeks and just plain forgot where in the cycle we were. Today we both woke up full of the joys, sun shining although breezy and did I say joyous?
Mr Mog is getting used to the pills, not as low or as tired. I am glad we didn't go to Derby though as the long journey late nights wouldn't have helped. Plus we are going to Wales on wednesday for a couple of days with ArtisAnn so need to be well for that. We have dyeing planned, we have fun planned:)
I took a few pictures in the garden this morning, can you tell my favourite colours I wonder?
latest water feature that Mr Mog is in the process of making accompanied by the rosemary.
Our oak and herbs
purpley/pink spiky things that I'm too lazy to go and check the name.
Nicotiana amongst the tumbler tomatoes
The tomatoes are ripening although these are not as good as previous years tumblers.
our version of pagan prayer flags from my friend Elaine's shop
The lavateria is blooming well
as is the borage, the shadows remind me of a puppet show.
The bees and butterflies love the buddleia as do we for its colour and wonderful honey perfume.
these purple flowers have bloomed for weeks amongst the sage and mint
would have helped if I'd put this right way up, nasturtiums and calendula
the pond is looking well, we shifted an incredible amount of surface oxygenating weed last week and need to move some more I think.
the yellow loosestrife goes well with what I think may be a weed? It looks good so it stays.
Alliums among the loosestrife
feathery plumes against deep leaves
last nights moon
slowly going behind the clouds
This butterfly loved the taste of the buddleia
It was only planted late last year but thrives against the fence.
These begonias were a gift from a lady on free cycle and go well with the herbs against the stone altar
