I don’t generally do requests, but when a lovely lady asks it would be churlish to refuse. Our capricious English weather has produced wonderful gardens this year, as you might have seen in my Open Gardens walk this week. There’s currently a bee fest going on in my own garden, where the foxgloves are rampant. An oriental poppy, planted last year, has just decided to swirl its skirts and join the party.
A fan of faded glory and all things derelict, when I mentioned it Sue surprised me by saying ‘I love pink oriental poppies. Take a photo for me!’ So here we are. I’m easing off the brake pedal a bit this week. There won’t be a Six Word Saturday from me as I’ll be in Nottingham, enjoying my daughter’s company. Before I go I’ll schedule a walk for next Monday, and catch up with you as soon as I can. Enjoy the sunshine!
