A Walk around Audrey’s Garden…

In Bloom

Another garden post! The truth is I can’t think of anything to say about writing that I haven’t said already. So no rule-quibbling, nothing about the WIP, and no buy-my-books message (although you can find out about those via the menu at the top or in the sidebar).

Roses are in bloom now. Here is a nameless (to me) white climber held up by the Norway maples I’m always complaining about, and (in the foreground) the red-leaf rose (Rosa glauca).

Dramatic Pruning from #Nebari Bonsai

This year’s blooming was spectacular. The blooms covered the entire tree, they were a deep red, and due to selective pruning over the last few years, only a few flowers of the “mother variety”. Here is the show.

Jaye’s Week…

A non-eventful week, but instead of worrying about the lack of progress, I have been counting my blessings. And despite the lack of evidence, I did find quite a few!

Top of the list: Work on the WIP has finally begun, and that alone has made my heart sing.

I have started knitting again. Nothing like a new great grandchild to get me reaching for a ball of wool and it is a great way to relax in the evenings!

The garden has been my greatest blessing. Everything is waking up, reminding me that life does go on, no matter what, so thought I would share some of the best bits!

This beautiful shrub makes the whole garden glow…
This camelia is not doing very well but still manages to turn up with a smile…
This rhodi is going to be amazing!
My favourite cherry tree…

Hope you all enjoyed the walk around my blossoming jungle…
