CLICK ON IMAGES TO ENLARGE. REPEAT IF REQUIRED
Watering and dead heading were the orders of the garden today. For the first time, I availed myself of
the Head Gardener’s dead heading trolley. This is basically an adapted IKEA sack barrow. The slot for secateurs has been obscured by the contents of the bucket of dead blooms. Scissors, weed- and slug-killers, stand in the top tray, so as to be readily available should the need arise.
I have selected various shades of pink to feature today. First we have the antique hue of kniphofia
blending well with this latticed candle holder.
White Japanese anemones featured yesterday, but we also have many pink ones;
similarly white gaura have featured before, but we also have other hues.
Phlox also comes in other pigments. Here is a pink one.
The spotlit trio of flamenco dresses are in fact begonias.
We finished our Chinese Takeaway this evening, and both drank sparkling water.
Finally there was a fair amount of pink in the sky at sunset.
