I was at a garden centre yesterday with my dear friend Bridget, and we drooled over trellis’s draped with Jasmine….80 euro a pop! We sadly turned from them, the scent lingering around us, and we made more modest purchases.
I thought of the Jasmine outside my front door, that I had been aware of somewhat neglecting to trim and water, so this morning I decided to feed and water it…and was assailed by that glorious sweet scent! On looking up I saw a tangle of newly opened flowers that I hadn’t even noticed.
Unravelling the twining strands was a pernickity job, but so pleasing when you’re surrounded by that heady scent!
Tied up over the door that opens, ready to come down the side on the right…
And on the other side, strung to grow horizontally.
A shot of Multi Blue Clematis, for Bridget…Not a true portrayal of the colour, but I don’t like tweaking colours in Photoshop.
Also for Bridget, Sambucca and Clematis ‘The President’….the photo doesn’t show the electric, vibrant colours together.
The President Obama bit: ( a personal rant…)
Who is this inflamatory Obama we’re hearing, ….starting up another Cold War?
Is he needing new bases to send soldiers to, when they withdraw from Afghanistan?
Giving self-interested reasons (David Cameron’s if not his own), as to why Scotland should stay in Britain….like, the patronising reasons are REALLY going to persuade Scottish voters….(Take your tongue out of your cheek, Charl!).
I promised cobwebs….this is my Website.
Allium Christophii seed heads….one bulb will produce a new and larger head every year…..I don’t mind cobwebs, because spiders catch flys….but I really ought to clean up the ones over the cooker!
And a last blast of my love affair with colour, the light above my stairs, inside an old bird cage.
And so to bed.
