After the madness of the day

After the horrendous weather we have had, and the after effects of the referendum, a little light relief is required. My hard work is coming together at last, even though it has been a very tough battle with the slugs and snails. They put a smile on my face and warmth in my heart.

    Trust a true gardener to bring some much-needed perspective to events!  We shall continue to plan ahead (daff/tulip bulbs anyone?) and see our future in calmer, gardening  ways.

    I love those pics - but I don't recognise number 4.  Do tell me what it is - want one, want one, want one!

    I cut the grass and got the furniture out. Now time to chill out and enjoy it.

    Jacqueline, my Daughter has the very same furniture in her new garden, they moved in a few weeks ago and never stopped, the garden was well established and needed some cutting back, it was on a slope and is now stepped an old shed was removed and a new summer house installed. Yesterday I was comfortable in one of the arm chairs in lovely sunshine directing operations next minute I was wet, a black cloud crept up on us and dumped its load. A mad rush into the summer house where we had our lunch as the sun came back out. Sitting there watching the birds flying into the garden I thought how wonderful a garden is for relaxing our body and mind.

    You have a lovely Garden enjoy it.

    Thank you Jacqueline. Just what I needed.

    Jacqueline, shrinking violet, I think those are Ammi majus--isn't that right?

  • Jacqueline29Jacqueline29 Posts: 392

    Hi Cambridgerose12 I think that you are right on Ammi Majus or commonly known as Bishop's Weed, lady's lace. I thought that it was a perennial as I picked it up in a pot that was in the shade in the garden, and it was not one that I planted this year? Apparently it is a Hardy Annual.

    Maybe the wonderful bees have pollinated it or the birds picked up some seeds. Who knows but it is lovely and grows lovely and high for the back of any border.

    Yes, lovely indeed! I'm very tempted to try it next year. If I remember rightly it needs quite dry conditions though. Still, always worth a try...

    Your garden flowers are beautiful, Jacqueline, and really lift the spirits. Thank you!
