A Walk Round The Garden

After a lengthy session of dead-heading, incidental weeding, trips to the compost bins, and a sit down this morning

I wandered around the garden with my camera. As usual these images are all titled in the gallery.

This afternoon we attended a family gathering at Elizabeth’s with Jacqueline, Joseph, Angela, Danni, Andy, and Ella, with Jack asleep upstairs. Sandwiches from Jacqueline, savoury rice from Angela supplemented Elizabeth’s sandwiches and cake. I drank low alcohol Old Speckled Hen. We brought home various goodies for lunch tomorrow..

I am an octogenarian enjoying rambling physically and photographing what I see, and rambling in my head as memories are triggered. I also ramble through a lifetime's photographs. In these later years much rambling is done in a car.

  1. I’d forgotten until now that ‘dead-heading’ used to refer to an afternoon spent listening to the music of the Grateful Dead. Maybe it still does. One of their prettiest songs, “Sugar Magnolia,” would perfectly suit a day like the one you describe here.

  2. You Day lilies are way in advance of mine… just green tight bud at the moment… πŸ™‚ Lovely photos and garden Derrick
    I did lots of weeding in the allotments this morning Derrick… and lots of sit downs too LOL… The rain was needed but those weeds took advantage LOL πŸ™‚

  3. All your hard work always pays off…all of the plants and flowers are smiling! πŸ™‚
    The ballerinas, the hanging-baskets plants, the rake and broom are my faves today! πŸ™‚
    YAY for family time! πŸ™‚ And yay for leftovers brought home! πŸ™‚
    (((HUGS))) πŸ™‚
    PS…we need to get out today and pull the few new weeds that popped up! πŸ™‚

  4. Your garden is coming along beautifully, Derrick. When you use the term “dead-heading”, I think of the “Grateful Dead” as well.
