This afternoon I accompanied my camera on a walk around the garden.
We have a number of brightly blooming begonias;
of different dahlias;
cow parsley, under the impression that the season is spring;
Summer Wine believing its period prevails;
chrysanthemums confident that it is now their time;
roses like this small pink patio example,
white Winchester Cathedral,
shy Shropshire Lad,
and hollyhocks, all uncertain;
ubiquitous fuchsias, erigerons,
clinging clusters of clematis;
golden Weeping Birch leaves poised to fall – all enjoying this warm shirtsleeves afternoon.
This evening we dined on Jackie’s lemon and herb chicken, wholesome savoury rice, and tender green beans with which she drank Hoegaarden and I drank Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon 2021.
