hello, june

I seem to have forgotten how to blog.

May overtook me - a month of being busy, having visitors, and disappearing under a layer of dust and grime from the on-going conservatory overhaul. I'm on the home run now....so close to being able get the paint and brushes out. It's the only creative thing going on around here, bar a little knitting.


The erigeron in the photos is bursting out of a crack in the wall at the bottom of my garden, contrasting beautifully with today's bright sunlight, and the silvery-grey of my fence.


These smile-inducing clumps are a common sight here, falling out of every available crack and crevice, and relishing the slighter milder climate of the far south west. I love them.

I think my visits here will continue to be a little slow, plus I'm headed up country for a family visit next week. There just aren't enough hours in the day and days in the month!

I love your gray fence--but of course you knew I would! Hope you have a good drive up and see you soon.

Lovely photographs. I like daisies, there are lots of oxeye daisies around here just now, not as delicate as you erigeron but still very summery.

I love erigeron. I have tried to sow and transplant it to my patio twice. It did not succeed. Boo

It is lovely to see you here x
