Tuesday Treasures – 2 #Brainfluffbookblog #LightintheLockdown

Standard

I’ve been uploading photos of my garden on my Sunday Posts, which have been getting a lot of positive comments, so I decided to make them a regular feature, but this time at full size so you can better appreciate the plants. It was my birthday on Friday and though it’s hard to imagine on this blustery, rain-soaked Tuesday morning, it was hot with bright sunshine and ideal for the planned picnic at Borde Hill Garden with my daughter and three grandchildren.

Tuesday Treasures – 1 #Brainfluffbookblog #LightintheLockdown

Standard

Raindrops on the fennel look like diamonds…
I love the colours of this pretty yarrow – and how it attracts the butterflies…
I have never known my black-leaved sambucca to be covered with so many flowers
The dark leaves of this heuchera glow in the June sunshine…
I wish you could smell this rose – rich and wine-scented
The echiums attract the bees and butterflies like nothing else in the garden…
And the sky above us is the deepest blue – without any com-trails slicing across it
