I was 'walking the bounds' early this morning. . . . . and it was beautiful.
Cooler temperatures, less pollen, and blooming going crazy!
Rain came by way of a very noisy thunderstorm last night, washing
and watering everything.
This corner in the front garden is quite lush.
The magnolia blooms almost finished but lovely bright green leaves out now.
The acer looking magnificent after my gentle prune, the knockout rose and
hydrangea huge already, the daylilies not blooming yet but their foliage
The sun is out now. I'm off to gather my pots around me to prepare
them for summer bulbs and herbs (basil, dill, parsley etc.) and
perhaps a couple of tomato plants.
Bob has gone to the Farmers' Market to pick up fresh eggs.
This evening we are attending a small wedding at an historic inn -
our first social engagement with friends - masked and distanced,
and at least we are vaccinated - in over a year!
It's 'casual' thankfully so won't be hard to dress for!
Kitchen window flowers from the garden for the weekend.
The death of Prince Philip has brought sadness around the world . . . .
but what an amazing long life and marriage to our lovely monarch.
My thoughts are with Queen Elizabeth and the Royal family.
Have a great weekend wherever you are.
