I was wondering round the garden with a camera when Shelly arrived for a morning coffee visit with congenial conversation.
Raindrops bejewelled various pelargoniums,
keeping fuchsias like Mrs Popple, and
and Hot Lips glistening.
Honesty seed pods sparkled,
Penstemons and marigolds are either early or late,
while the viburnums Bodnantense Dawn are definitely early,
and rose New Dawn displays a new bud over the Rose Garden pergola.
Like the garden I felt brighter today, although, like Schoolgirl rose, a bit light-headed.
This evening we dined on more of Hordle Chinese Take Away fine fare with which Jackie drank Hoegaarden and I drank another glass of the Fleurie.
