  • On The Brink of October

    This morning I trained my camera on the garden from various vantage points beginning with our en suite bathroom window. From the patio can be seen, against the kitchen wall, some of the glorious zinnias that Jackie grew from seed and spread abundantly around the beds; and this corner of the Pond Bed sporting Delta’s […]

  • Volunteers, Casualties, Survivors

    Our Head Gardener this morning toured the garden making a pictorial record of its current condition now the full force of the heatwave seems to have subsided somewhat. Some may consider that the task which fell to me – loading the pictures into the computer, making the tiled gallery and titling the individual images with […]

  • One For Jessie

    Knowing that hosepipe bans were to be imposed on Hampshire and the Isle of White today, we were relieved to learn that bans were determined by the water companies. Our supplier is Bournemouth Water, which has not yet ordered a ban. I celebrated with a gallery of garden views. Flo and Dillon continued clearing, planting, […]

  • Reaching Above The Potting Shed

    Flo, yesterday evening, and Jackie this morning spent a good deal of time continuing the tidying of the Rose Garden.

  • The Garden At The Start Of July

    Yesterday evening Jackie finished her work on the Lawn Bed.

Early this morning Jackie and I transported the last of the garden refuse to the Efford Recycling Centre, after which we purchased three […]

  • A Sunless Sultry Day

    On this sunless sultry morning Jackie watered, I dead headed, and Martin carried out the heavier garden maintenance. Before he left, I printed him an A4 portrait I had produced on his last visit. Later, I wandered around with my camera. As usual, individual titles can be found in the images gallery. This evening all […]

  • A Walk Round The Garden

    After a lengthy session of dead-heading, incidental weeding, trips to the compost bins, and a sit down this morning I wandered around the garden with my camera. As usual these images are all titled in the gallery. This afternoon we attended a family gathering at Elizabeth’s with Jacqueline, Joseph, Angela, Danni, Andy, and Ella, with […]

  • Where’s Martin?

    Martin and Jackie spent several hours between them this morning weeding and clearing; I chipped in with some of each and mostly dead heading, largely concentrating on the Rose Garden, of which I wish I could convey the scents. After lunch I recorded the general scenes, as usual titled in the galleries. View east from […]

  • Slaking Its Thirst

    On another bright-sunny-cool afternoon I took a tour of the garden In the front crab apple blossom, and clematis Montana, the first accompanied by budding pink climbing roses, the second by hybrid bluebells. I made a number of images from upstairs, The views from the stable door and from the kitchen path towards the greenhouse […]

    All was quiet and still early this morning. Storm Eunice had passed on and the sun shone. We began by shopping at Tesco. After half an hour the skies darkened, the wind speed rose seemingly faster than the predicted 46 m.p. h., and heavy rain steadily descended throughout our subsequent forest drive. A team must […]
