Just Because . . .

Just because it’s been a long Monday at work

because it’s no longer January

because in twenty four days it will be March

because I’m not walking to and from work in the dark

because the days are getting longer

and that means spring

and that means summer

and that means the colour, form  and fragrance

of flowers and butterflies

bees and damselflies

and sunshine

because of all these things

I’m bringing you . . .

Pictures from a few years ago taken at a popular TV gardeners home plot, deep in the heart of Devon. I expect it’s changed since then, but it will still be lovely, relaxed and packed with variety. The clue is in the initials, if you visit she may even be there pottering.

  1. a little piece of heaven thank you Gilly … we have had a light shower of rain here but not enough to revive the trees without irrigation … it is quite harsh and dry at the moment 🙂

  2. beautiful shots and equally pretty words introducing them!
    I love how you described Glebe Cottage’s location: “the back of beyond.” Sure sounds like the type of place we’d be interested to see when we’re there in August!

I would love to hear from you . . .
