Bloomin Marvellous

While I was in New York for 3 weeks
Nature was busy
and the garden is looking so wonderful

White Lupins, Lady's Mantle, Fennel, Flowering Sage
a yellow flower I have no idea what it is (do you?)
and lots of weeds

Lady's Mantle, Fennel, Delphinium.........buttercups!


and white Peony beside blood red Astrantia
I liked this so much that it was the inspiration for a small bouquet for a friend

I will have no outdoor space in New York
I will miss picking posies
and tending to it, planning and waiting and being surprised
A garden has taught me to have patience, trust and faith.

So I hereby declare 
I would like a garden in NYC 


  1. WOw, tremendous. YOu should do a huge blow up of the first and paste in on a bloomin' Brooklyn wall.

  2. Such BEAUTIFUL flowers. I see exactly why you'll miss them.

  3. Helen

  5. The yellow flower is Lysimachia punctata. Your garden, cat and I miss you terribly. I enjoyed your incredible crop of apples a great deal though!
