re-posting garden flowers, from June 25th 2008.

these pretty little flowers are from a sempervivum, a house leek. it lives in the greenhouse and seems to quite like it.
I took several photographs to try to show the bees in the foxglove flowers but this is the only one that shows, its very dark inside a foxglove flower and the bees can dissapear totaly out of sight!
and just look at all the flowers on the broad beans! I imagine every one turning into a lovely pod of beans. everything in the veggy garden seems very behind, some folks seem to already be harvesting these. I am getting great lots of lettuce, some nice baby onions and have had one teeny baby courgette.

some peace

May your troubles be less,
may your blessings be more,
and may nothing but happiness come through your door.

goodbye Granny Ann

not my photograph, lifted from facebook

Rock Rebel Granny, I called her Granny Ann.
nobody in the world was excluded from her world, an amazingly kind woman who will be missed by her family and internet friends.
leads to the discussion of how we could be friends never having met....
the world becomes a small place with the addition of a keyboard and a laptop... or even smaller now you can do everything (it seems) on a pocket phone.
