Shade

Aquilegia

Dusky aquilegia in the dappled shade.

Which was where I was skulking most of the day. Unfortunately this did not involve a hammock, the latest hort-lit blockbuster or even a pint of piña colada.   Just spiteful nettles, strings of enchanter’s nightshade and stubborn self-seeded ferns.  Well you can’t have everything.

  1. I’m trying to imagine you hunkered down beneath the shrubbery. The heat is arriving here at last – 29 on Sunday, says the weatherman. I will be touring open gardens as part of the Hardy Plants Group Study weekend, no doubt with water bottle in hand and searching for a bit of shade.
