My Garden is a constant source of forgiveness and love.
We have had SCORCHING temperatures here this last week, but despite it all, my plants have managed to get through and show their splendour
When I got back from my holiday, I was delighted to see this Lilly in full flower. . .and so glad there was still a couple to open. I bought them at a Farmers Market months ago. Bulbs are such a reward for patience.
Hollyhocks coming up OUTSIDE the rocks . . . hmm, could I be moving those rocks again?
My Pierre deRonsard was saying "photograph me! each flower, pick me pick me," as I went snap, snap, snap!
It was hard to resist as they were all so beautiful.
Tiger Lillies coming soon
I know I'm not supposed to have favourites, but . . . Double Delight gets me every time. She is just so delicate.
So, after a scorching day, we did have some drops of rain last night and lots of electrical storms . . . not good for fires, but . . .
my garden was smiling this morning and that makes me happy.
I started off with the Eva Pattern from Tsuitti - this was my practise. Nice and cool but too big around the top - then I modified the skirt and kept the top section. Hmm - only modelling because I said I would!
