We have alternate rain and sun this week and the garden is growing like a Normandy version of the Amazon forest. Fast and luxuriant!
I found a few pieces out at a fair this morning, accompanying clients who were having fun filling up bags and ticking off wish-lists.
Each time I come home to the garden, I find myself with mixed feelings …. pleased to see so many flowers, and yet rather jealous of those gardeners who can show real restraint. My atttempts at the mixed-border-meet-cottage-garden seem to result in some very over crowded and somewhat over busy beds.
I know all the theory about leaving space between perennials, leaving them room to grow and develop, I just find it hard to leave any empty spots. Maybe one day I shall turn my garden over to a professional, who will rip everything out and start over …. maybe …
Meanwhile back at the loot shoot, Ghetto was pretty grumpy about not having come along to the fair, and needed two biscuits before he’d smile.
Have to love that special light when bright sunshine pierces through dark menacing clouds.
I hope you have done something fun this weekend. Thank you for reading me, despite the more sporadic posting right now.
Wishing you all a great week ahead.
