My gardening task today was cutting the grass.
It is as well that I did carried that out before photographing this symphony in red provided by tellimas, rhododendron, pieris, mimuluses and petunias.
Another rhododendron that I photographed last week in a still closed and soggy state is now fully open and looking well refreshed;
as are the red and white tulips at the front of the house.
New arrivals are clematises
and Marie Boisselot;
yet more Crane’s bill geraniums;
Pheasant’s eye, perhaps the last of the narcissi;
and different alliums.
As has been noted before, the Hordle Chinese Take Away set meal for two can always be extended into the next day. So it was with yesterday’s, the seconds of which we enjoyed this evening, with profiteroles to follow. Jackie drank Hoegaarden, and I drank more of the Bordeaux.
