Flowers Found

We stopped the car at the top of our street the yesterday to try and reign in a stray dog that was meandering towards the highway. It happens a lot where I live. We had no luck with the dog but I did spy a neglected ornamental plum that was crying out for a bit … Continue reading Flowers Found

Sweet and low

Just because. Snapping up the last of the sweet peas (it’s too hot for them poor loves), and digging to find iceburg, albertine and lichfield angel roses that haven’t been drained of colour by thrips yet, plus the tail end of the iris and a few sprigs of queen annes lace and lambs ears.
