Round Here

: There’s washing hanging in the glorious sunshine and drying

: There’s always so much pink despite my protests it’s what is sort out, it’s what’s worn

: There’s deep blue sky and birds flying through it chirping away

: There’s the strong sweet perfume coming from my 3(!) Daphne bushes out the front and I’m finding excuses just to walk that way so I can get a hit. There are wee bunches of it next to our beds, in the bathrooms wherever I can put it!

: There’s my winter roses (Hellebore’s) standing straight up looking like fairy lamp posts. Until last week when I got really stuck into the garden you couldn’t even tell that they were in there – a lovely surprise!

: There’s an excited Preschooler who was enrolled into “big School” yesterday asking if today is the day she starts? Someone is so ready for school – it’s going to be a long 6 month wait!


  1. Even though its August, Im so excited by all teh cherry blossom buds, jasmine buds and I even have jonquils popping up all over the place. Cant wait to make ice-cream!

  6. Reading this post I had a sense of deja vu .. crazy old world.
    Beautiful garden and how I wish I had a lovely Daphne bush .. and I miss the hellebores I had in New Zealand .. not much in this garden, violets, roses, magnolia .. lovely but not enough for me!
