The Calm of a Garden

Few words today

but a quick trot around our garden which is burgeoning in the warm sun.

Showers are frequent and heavy , but then it is April after all.

These pictures were taken yesterday afternoon as I fed the livestock and was drawn by the play of golden light on the shadier parts of the whole.

I have written before of my love of this time of day where calm descends on the garden for just a moment before the dinnertime rush calls me inside once more. I love calm.

Even the hens and ducks quieten for a while.

Forget-me-nots, vivid red tulips, soft honesty and verdant green leaf are all around with blossoms opening on a higher level.

It is all very lovely and will hopefully become even lovelier over the coming weeks.

Have a lovely weekend xx

  4. A beautiful garden - so much colour. I, too, find the calm of the chickens a nice punctuation to the day before teatime. I like the way they croon at me as I wander round the chook run.
