What is the first thing you do when you arrive home after a few days away?
Last evening when I arrived home from Chelsea, I didn’t even open the door of the house but immediately needed to walk around the garden to satisfy myself that all was well.
The sun was going down do the light was coming from a low angle and the garden seemed magical to me.
Even more of the roses were blooming, Madonna lilies were opening and Stipa tenuissima was wafting about in the wind, tempting me to run my fingers through it.
I hate being away from home at this time of year, all the more because later in summer it will be too hot and many plants will go into summer hibernation so this is really the moment for abundance in the garden. I did enjoy the Chelsea Flower Show and when I get my thoughts together I’ll post about my impressions.
