Discovering the Red Hot Poker stems and seed pods covered in snails with stripey shells was an incredible sight the other day. They were everywhere! One had a brown shell so shiny it almost looked like a conker! It was pouring with rain but a great opportunity to test out the macro.
The Sunflowers in the garden are looking rather lovely this week. I hope they flower soon, it will be great to see them bloom given POD planted the seeds. The bed they’re in is now desperate for a weed but we haven’t quite found the energy yet. Grasshoppers adore it and I even spotted a ladybird in the shade whilst trying to photograph one of our jumping friends.
I can’t wait to kick the autumn leaves in the nearby forest though. POD fell over in the leaves for the first time last year and bounced. Then giggled. It was a superb moment.
The empty bed adjacent to the new patio has been filled with blue and pink Hydrangea, a Hosta and some little red, white and pink Cyclamen.
It’s wonderful to see the area that was previous decked look so welcoming.
