Family and friends gathered … horses had been fed, watered and were out in the field on the Downs ...
... the day was cold, but dry and sunny at least …
The cat had disappeared … Bertie is not too keen on visitors!
|Well in this photo - she's hoping someone will throw the|
ball for her ... but that someone just wanted to have a zizz!
The beloved dog was greeting all visitors, happy just being around her two-legged pals … this photo is from the end of Summer last year.
I think there were 16 of us … as I’m no longer required to help – that eliminates me from knowing numbers or worrying about how many table settings or seating plans!
|Just making sure I was well|
watered! Sadly I was driving
so that scuppered that!
I just need to chat away to whomever wished to be talked to … including the dog!
Chocolate eggs were dotted around the garden for garnering in later on …
|Egg planting session here|
... strange custom to have plants that give us chocolate – but they do … especially as some of you recently mentioned about chocolate mint …
|Rockery - rosemary in front, bluebells|
beyond, shrubs and many other plants
So here’s some photos of the day and the garden … this is before the full spring blooms were out … it is now meant to be late Spring early Summer – but it is raining!
|Beech tree underplanted with|
cyclamen - where the hammock sits
Over the years the garden has matured and changed … it is not the easiest soil to garden on … chalk – doesn’t help – this wet spell will have improved its lot immeasurably …
Right off we go – pictures and some notes – on names of flowers, trees etc … (well some of them anyway!) …
well that was the post that was!
|Wild naturally planted rockery - Downs in distance,|
with primroses, bluebells and cowslips
Enjoy your fresh air breaks ... see how many plants, flowers, trees etc you can identify ... if not - check out later on ... and watch them change as we go through the seasons ... not too quickly please for this third-ager!
