Just Moseying Around!

 Our spring this year has been very kind to us,
(unlike 2011 with rain, fog and clouds...ad infinitum)
And another aspect of pleasure...
I thought would be of major interest is
the lack of flies and marauding blood sucking insects.
With this is mind we are able to appreciate our flowers...
plain and simple!

 Cotton Candy Rhodo blossom....mmmm!

 Stalwart Chives

 Bachelor Button
(purple variety...pink is on its way)


 Teddy Bear Rhodo Blossom
(near the end of its show)

 That's me, in case you didn't know, pretending to be either
a carpet of blue forget-me-nots or
a mugo pine or
a miniature fir...you pick!

 another pink variety of early rhodo...

a PJM variety of Rhodo

and our flowering weeping crabapple...
so soft and deliciously scented

so this is one of my meandering times
early evening 
as the sun  decides to sink 
ever so slowly 
into the west.
I hope you enjoyed viewing my flora as much as
I enjoy showing you.

Must check out the rhubarb
...need some for a recipe!

  10. GruffHello there! We liked your Garden Stroll - though think Sophie was saying to "hurry up" and "oh do keep up with me" - ha ha, when you were asking her to roll mover (which she did, bless her, rather brilliantly!) - we also loved the sea pictures! We've had a bit of sun her in England, and oh we are not over used to it, thus we are more stationary in our gardens, on our backs with our legs in the air - ha ha!! (or is that just me!!!) - Take care Sophie, hopefully see more of you soon, Barnie x

    1. I heard the heat was summoning summer over there...we have a temperate climate and our spring is cool and warm..thus the flowers last so much longer. Yes, you are right Sophie can be very bossy sometimes, butshe will rollover on a dime lately...very amusing and eye catching when we take her to the park for a social moment! Sophie seems to understand now that she's 5...phew!
