In my garden change happens


The showy petals of Patty’s Plum oriental poppy give way to the tight buds of  Black Elder (Sambucus nigra). And so it is that one thing leads to another. And although the prospect of change often worries us, there can be great beauty in transience. There is excitement too, if we allow it: of a ‘what will happen next?’

  1. I say, Tish – what an extraordinary bloom ! I’ve never seen anything like it … Oriental Poppy, eh ?
    Bloody amazing – and beautiful, in an excessive kind of way. 😀

  2. Bravo! Dramatic presentation Tish. The colors, composition and virtual texture of the photo make it almost three dimensional. The photo would make an excellent water color subject. Thank you for sharing your art. Enjoy the weekend.

  3. So lovely! I love the vivid colours and little red buds. There’s so much we can learn from Nature, if we stop and pay attention.

    Thanks for showing my blog some love. 🙂

  4. At 65 now, the garden of my life is changing again. Some fear and uncertainty but I will dig out any weeds that arise. That is one part of the script I can write myself. Thanks visit my blog.

    1. And thank you for making me smile. And yes you’re right about the weeding. One thing we can deal with. In fact I’m off to my allotment veggie plot to do just that 🙂

    1. That sounds like a few delicious meals in the making. Carl. Sweet peppers don’t do too well in the UK, even under cover, but I too have got tomatoes and squash sprouting. In fact my poly tunnel is bursting with lettuce, parsley and coriander.
