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!
