a lovely touch on hot chocolate served at a cafe.
the erythroniums before they start to curl back their petals
this is a chestnut sapling, nearly a foot high now, I found it one day when I was weeding, now its safely in a pot until a home is found(I might keep it in a pot till its quite large, but wouldn't plant it here, too big a tree for too small a garden).
the garden seems to enter a pause, as things are hardened off and I wait for seedlings to germinate, there's no shortage of things to do, but I may just have a hot chocolate and look at it in 'my minds eye' today.
my gardening friend, Billy, said the other day 'real gardeners, like you and me' which is so much a compliment as I never do anything how 'his dad' did so always feel he dissaproves slightly. bless him!
