Clematis & Solanum, my birthday plants
Lots of feverfew from my old friend Jetta
I'll never tire of a foxglove still enjoyed by the bees
lacecap in my little woodland
wrong end of the country for a gravel garden, but still.
I missed out on annual sweet peas but still have the perennial ones
I need more Sweet William, it looks like a cluster of Pinks.
I had such fun making this for Billy's 18th ;) He'd just been fishing with a mate up the North end of the island & caught a huge Pollack which was delicious, as were the Mackerel. This looks nothing like either fish! I used, as you may have noticed, the same papers I'd made for my postcards. I 'borrowed' a 'fly' that Billy had in his collection of tied flies. He assured me it was a good one & will probably want it back. Also that you don't catch pollack with a fly - that's me told!
I've got 20 postcards towards my month of July, of course. Of that 20, 7 are 'missing' from my photos file so I'll have a browse around a few blogs to see if they were the ones posted about. If not, no matter!
I completely forgot on this bright day, to take a pic of my next strip of August squares. Too excited prancing around the garden in amongst the summer flowers!
