This week on Tuesday Treasures, I am featuring more of our unkempt garden… Since I’ve taken these pics – on a day when I was feeling better – Himself has now done a lot of weeding, so it’s looking tidier! And I’m also able to sit out in the sunshine and enjoy it😊.
Thank you, Rae:)).
So nice! I don’t know what most of them are other than the Heuchera (Coral Bells) but I like them.
Ah… I should have identified them… 1) the blossom of the black-leaved elder (sambuca nigra) – I think the variety is called Black Lace. 3) Tradescantia, which is a bit tender, but copes here on the south coast and I love it. 4) Flowers of the curry plant just before they open. 7) Choisya golden fingers – one of my favourite plants as it glows vibrantly throughout the year. And yes – you’re right – the others are all varieties of heuchera, which I absolutely love:)). Apart from the strawberries, of course.
Beautiful blooms! We have Heuchera here but I’m not sure I’ve ever seen blooms on them like you have. Maybe it gets too hot here or we don’t get enough sun? I love seeing your flowers and hope you are feeling a bit better and getting plenty of rest.
Thank you, Katherine:)). Yes, the heuchera all flower, but to be honest – I love them for their stunning foliage. And yes… I think I am getting better, but it’s very, very slow and uneven.
We let the wild rabbits weed our “garden,” lol!
What an intelligent solution! Meantime, the bindweed is rampaging through our vegetation unchecked as whenever Himself has a day off, it has been blowing a hoolie and pouring with rain, recently!
A “hoolie”–is that like a big thunderstorm? I love the word! It sounds like what the wind would do as it runs across the windowpanes. 🙂
I think it’s the sound the wind makes when it blows hard down chimneys, through twittens and across rigging… At least that’s what I’ve always assumed – it’s an accepted English saying for blowy weather:)).
OH! I like learning new words. 🙂 I’ll have to remember that word, for we had quite the hoolie yesterday, complete with yet another sky of tornado-building air….blech…
Urg! It’s been a dreadful summer here – cool, cloudy and/or windy and lots of rain. But when I see the chaos around the world caused by storms, high temperatures, wildfires and tornados, floods, etc – I’m not minded to make too much of a fuss about it…
I know what you mean! The rains we’ve had this month have been intense, but nothing like other areas of the country. And the fact we have a blue sky–my kid brother in Idaho (he moved from Arizona) says they just don’t see the blue sky anymore because of the wild fires. My mind doesn’t know how to picture that.
That sounds tragic! And must be so bad for anything with breathing problems – not to mention mental health at not being able to see the blue sky…:((.
It really drains the soul. Another reason I am so so SO excited for fall and the promise for new colors and chills…and quiet at home with kids at school. 🙂
I’m sure you are! We are currently enjoying a bit of a warm spell, which is very welcome with the days growing ever shorter and the knowledge that autumn is now here…
