hiding in the slightly neglected greenhouse, things keep growing even when you're not looking
will probably check on them a bit more carefully now, the last couple of weeks I've been so busy its been a case of watering but not looking.

change of direction

I am just laughing at myself. I have just sold, on e-bay, a set of Double Bit, for riding advanced dressage.
I have just bought, from e-bay, a Natural Horsemanship Hackamore. which is a rope headcollar with rope reins. hopefully that means riding around gleefully with some attempt at control while I and horse enjoy ourselves.
bit different then!!

blue poppys

the petals have fallen from the first poppy which came out, and a pleasant surprise to find another two opening.

todays flowers

almost every photograph I took tonight when I got home
I can't choose, so have uploaded all, mostly unedited.
some very similar

ah, in this one you can see the new scratches now across the lens of my camera, oops. they're only showing up when the light is at a certain angle but they are deep and right across the lens.

at last, self seeded love-in-a-mist

and I have a blue poppy!
one of my few purchased plants, this came from the Scottish Explorers Garden
can't wait for it to come out fully!! I visited there last year with the SRGC.
