You may have noticed I have been missing from the blogging world for a couple of weeks, several reasons for this. Firstly we have had lots of visitors, secondly the weather really has been too nice to spend much time sitting indoors at the computer, and thirdly we are in the process of trying to sell out home of thirty plus years and move to the city for our retirement, which, as many you will know, is an extremely stressful and time consuming activity!
this week I did manage to get ten minutes with my camera between meetings at the beautiful Hilliers Gardens in near Romsey - the English Country Garden, what better way to celebrate summer?
There was plenty of variety to choose from, I loved the soft greens and gold here
and I loved the grandeur of this artichoke flower
There were insects aplenty
butterflies and bees
Plants with defined structure
Plants that blended and melded with each other and the 'art in the garden'
and finally my absolute favourite, the burning pink heart of summer ( no idea what it is!)
Hope you are all enjoying your summer wherever you are!
