My garden in bloom

Welcome to a sample of glorious blooms from my garden!

I’ve had the most magnificent poppies this year, they self seed and scatter themselves across the garden. I adore poppies, they’re so beautiful.

I love my garden. It’s so peaceful. I’ve lost a couple of roses to a nasty virus and will replace them next winter. A few have yet to bloom this year, such as Lady Phelia. I’m planning to buy anemones and more irises next year, and I’m looking forward to seeing the frangipani finally get big enough to bloom… There always something to look forward to in a garden, always something that carries you into the future.

In other wonderful news, my eye sight has finally cleared up enough that I can read again. I think the past week was the longest break from reading I’ve done since I was a kid! I usually read every day and I’m much happier for it. I’ve dug out some Terry Pratchett which is suiting me perfectly. Things are looking up!

Today is a very busy day, I’m working as a face painter at one gig all day and another that’s expected to be very busy all evening. I’m really nervous about how I hold up – wish me luck!

I appreciate hearing from you
