At the end of last week there was rain, quite heavy rain but this week has been sunny with blue skies, but it has also been cold, very cold, nearly but not quite touching zero during the night. Today, though, has been sunny and pleasantly warm, the north wind dropped and it was a lovely day to be outside, hence this post is a bit late.
The slope isn’t very different today but the yellow berries on the Melia azedarach are turning a lovely yellow and look wonderful against the blue sky.
The usual view. Look at the field beyond the garden, it is a wonderful almost emerald green
I’m going to cut down the stems of Verbascum, there are enough seedlings emerging and I want to clean up the view
The strong bright greens are plants of Eschscholzia californica
Looking up the slope from the gate. The solid forms of Quercus ilex have a real pressence now
The prostrate rosemary continues to attract the odd bee with its pretty blue flowers.
These views of the slope continue to please me especially when I remember there was nothing growing here at all until October 2009
I love to see the yellow berries of the Melia azedarach against the blue sky
Do you still have bright berries to reflect the sunlight? Is there a part of your garden that gives you pleasure all through the year?
