Sorry I couldn't get any closer but I was afraid of falling in (!) and I haven't sussed out the zoom on this camera yet.
Around the rest of the garden, it started with the purple shades, then pinks took over, but the whites are now taking centre stage.
At the side of the pond, the mock orange is giving off a delicious scent
so it's lovely to have the stone bench underneath, to sit and watch the pond life. The dragon and damsel flies are very busy, and I'm looking forward to introducing frogs by way of spawn, next year.
I've just noticed on that pic how much bare fence there is here, so I'll try to do something about that (see previous post about gorgeous garden visit).
These little beauties enjoy the dappled shade of the pear tree
while these soak up the sunshine
and their neighbours are an amazingly intense white.
It's too hot for me outside during the day (unless sitting in the shady corner) so I'm inside, dreaming of how to transform the now sad, bleak hen pen and house. I'm determined to make it beautiful once more.
I've cleaned out the bedding since this pic, and need to go and buy the paint to cheer it all up.
I've also been putting together a Pinterest board 'Kitchen Dreaming' so you'll be able to follow my thoughts and plans for this, once I discover how to post Pinterest here.
Just posted this over with Julia at http://stamping-ground.blogspot.co.uk/2013/07/whats-on-your-workdesk-wednesday-214.html so hope to catch up with some of you over there.
Hoping you're enjoying the summer sunshine, lots of love for now, Chris xx
