CLICK ON IMAGES TO ENLARGE. REPEAT IF REQUIRED.
Today’s photographic projects were prompted by responses to recent posts.
Yesterday’s offering included 35 photographs, and of those who favoured the very last one, Laurie Graves, herself an excellent blogger, suggested a large print. I made one of A3+ with a white margin.
Various comments focussed on potential views from the seats portrayed in ‘Seating Arrangements’, the day before. In contrast to the last two days, this one was very dull, but I thought I would oblige, on my perambulation around the garden.
Here is the view to the left of the aluminium dump bench, and through the gazebo to the Palm Bed. The Florence statue appears on the right hand edge of the image;
a are direct sight of her is gained from the Ace Reclaim Bench.
She has gathered a few more baskets around her. I cropped the close-up because a blue bucket and a hose reel would have been more than The Head Gardener could tolerate.
From one of the chairs in the gravelled patio we look towards the Oval Bed
containing one our clumps of rudbeckia.
A strategically placed chair faces east along the Phantom Path.
This time I have included the decking seating arrangement, on which the signs of impending autumn are beginning to fall. (That one is for my friends over the pond)
It is, of course, the time for dahlias;
and for ice plants to attract working bees.
This evening we dined on Jackie’s luscious lamb jalfrezi, savoury rice, parathas, and onion bahjis. She drank Hoegaarden and I drank Heritage de Calvet Côtes du Rhône Villages 2014.
