Pink Tutus


these peonies remind me of ballerinas in pink tutus

Dancers in Pink by Edgar Degas

I love this time of year in the garden when everything is starting to grow and burst into flower.  The lupins and foxgloves growing up tall amongst the roses, hostas and ferns unfurling their vivid green leaves.  Everything is looking quite lush at the moment thanks to some regular night time rainfall and daytime sunshine.


 





This evening Paul is at bowls club, Sarah is cycling in the gym, Rick is asleep and I'm watching the Chelsea Flower Show.  Perfect.

    1. I like to watch the show but I'm not sure we could adopt any of their designs here.

  4. I'm jealous. Someone recently sent me photos of our garden at Peyrot. The grass was a metre high, and the whole place looked awful. I'm hoping that the gardener will have been before we arrive for the Summer.

    1. It's amazing how much difference just cutting the grass can make.

  6. Nature's growth is all so fresh and hopeful in late May. Now on to "flaming June" though I would not put money on that.

    1. I take nothing for granted, I just enjoy the sunshine when it appears.

  7. Lovely garden and I love Chelsea too, but do wish they'd talk less and show the gardens and flowers more.

  8. Yes, it would be nice to have less chat and more focus on the gardens.

  9. Hope all is well with you, and your garden is still blooming despite the hot, dry summer you have had. I've missed your posts!
