The buds shown a few days ago have now opened. This photo was taken just before the gardener planted this and the other fuchsias and geraniums outside.

Not a particularly good specimen, but the only one I have, and the early morning sun on it was quite striking.

At the bottom of the garden – my longest walk for 10 days, and I had to stop for a rest on the bench both going and coming back. And no, my garden is quite small!

Halcyon Days 1

Blip-11

I have a number of small, beautifully painted, containers produced around the 1970’s or 80’s. The lady who now helps me with some cleaning once a fortnight spotted one, and tells me she used to paint some of them! Most of the ones I bought had a bird theme.

The fuchsia plugs I planted a couple of weeks ago already have buds on, though it seems a bit early to plant them out yet.

One which was left over from the hanging basket – which means it’s more accessible for photography.
