Peonies. Pink. Perfect.
This is happening in the garden… after two years of waiting.
If we were having coffee, I’d invite you to step back in time to 31st October, 2014. The date of my first blog post, and a proud but nervous moment it was. Putting my words and thoughts out there before the world. Quiet little me. What could possibly go wrong?
Well, in truth, nothing has gone particularly wrong, but nothing amazingly right either. I’ve found it difficult to post regularly; sometimes whole months can go by without a word entering cyberspace. The focus of my blog has wavered. I take far too long to prepare my photos for posting because I insist on watermarking them, but I’m now wondering why! I want to post about anything and everything, but also feel I have to spend an age combing through each paragraph for errors. I need to make some decisions about how I blog and when.
I’d like to ask you a few questions to help me with this process.
Oh, and the rose. Mme Alfred Carriere. It was the subject of my first post, way back in 2014. After all this time, it has flowered. So here are the pictures: before and after. I’m hoping my blog can blossom too.
Two pink flowers.
The first, a bold and gaudy primula; the second, a tiny alpine, with an almost metallic sheen to its petals.
A lot of yellow around in the garden at the moment.
Even if the weather leaves a lot to be desired!
I love it.
A wonderful red anemone from my garden. Now I feel that Spring has arrived!
Just when I thought this raw, rain-sodden winter would never end, I found that these few miniature daffodils had returned. They stand, in single file, pointing towards Spring…
