nasturtium, lupin, lithodora
We took a rare opportunity to go for a kayak, just out into the sound. there's the DH way ahead
& here's me (do I look big in this?!) with Ben Sgritheall behind. The silvery water was wonderful.
a quick visit to my garden - perennial sweet pea
honeysuckle round the mail box - the postie won't be able to get near soon
A thistle by the front door - I'll catch it before any seeds disperse!
& a lovely pink Grunyard Double (with half the pergola screen still missing - the clematis has grown all over the bench instead)
I managed a few cards - past designs, I'm sure new ones will come soon
We've had searing heat, almost tropical downpours, ordinary grey days & a week of an amazing Haar type thing, the place looks so different without a mountainous background.
Can't believe I caught this pic with a mouth wide open & the insect just about to go in. (happy to admit I couldn't see it thru the lens ;) they fledged, what must have been a second brood, a week or so ago.
A baby of a different kind, a toad I think.
& a little bit of produce, mmmmm
Thanks for looking!
