Food for Thought for Friday -- Summer has arrived

It's been such lovely weather this week that we have been out and about rather a lot in our usual haunts but the thing with our usual haunts is that they are mostly gardens and gardens change. There's always something new. Yesterday at Wallington I saw the most beautiful poppy I have ever seen. Impressed?
I didn't know you could get a poppy that colour. Stunning. It looks like raspberry mousse.

 The usual poppies were present too of course

The wisteria was out too.
And this whatever it is:
I really think Neptune was thinking of taking a dive in the garden pond -- he was suitably attired :)

 We always have a favourite place to sit in these gardens. At Wallington everyone wants this seat because of
its view and shade and in my case because of a nearby tree whose leaves make a sound like rain even on a dry day -- perverse of me maybe ;) 
 I do love the sound of a heavy shower.

and the tranquility of a beautiful garden

No walk today alas -- I am painting our bedroom -- sigh!


  1. That poppy does look like raspberry mousse! What a lovely garden. Good luck with the paint. Maybe you can use the paint scraper that made its way there from Minnesota!

  2. Use The Sacred Scarpaer of Minneapolis? Are you out of your mind? ;)
