Photo-a-Day (Tuesday, 30th June, 2020)
Pretty Garden colours
Nice Lupines Anne, not notice you on Wiganworld lately.
Nicely Anne. I've always liked the tall, blue lupin and its family's star-shaped leaves. I remember standing beside Chatsworth's lupin bed and being tapped on the shoulder by a tall woman from the Netherlands, who then asked 'Can you take seeds from these?'. She seemed fair enough and spoke with a deep husky voice that failed to travel.
Stunning ..... this picture reminds me of those lovely high gloss greetings cards you find in garden centres.
The garden has been a Godsend, more so lately. Lovely photo.
Lupins great colours, just watch out for green fly.
Nice garden too.
What a beautiful photo to brighten a dull day! I have never had a garden, just a box in the backyard where we grow potatoes and tomatoes, but I love to see other people's gardens.
What a lovely way to start a day.
Well done, lass.
Beautiful picture Anne. Is it in the walled garden at Haigh Hall.
Irene its no wonder you dress up at weekends
That is a lovely shot Anne,enough to brighten anyone’s day.. And I love Lupins,they’re just so elegant,the colours are beautiful,I’ve not had so many flowers in my garden this year due to the lockdown and other things,(except Clematis)...you certainly have an eye for beauty.
I know Irene Mick and she always looks very smartly dressed whether modern style or 40's style. Back yards or court yards can look every bit as nice as a garden with pot plants, also walls are much nicer than wooden fences which I hate and cover them with shrubs. Usually backyards have lovely stone flags, or cobbles. Far nicer than grass in my opinion.
True I haven't posted since airing an opinion on the new site, an opinion which hasn't changed. I realise Brian has worked hard but can't please everyone. I do visit and was surprised to see my piccy as I sent it in before the first of the summer gales flattened everything. Thanks for the kind responses.
Thankyou Veronica. xx
I'm so glad veronica said " in my opinion" because grass makes a garden and plants come to life.
Your so right Veronica, the garden has been a Godsend.Only for mine I think I would be insane by now.
I have to agree...beautiful colours Anne, lovely shot.. Cheers!!
Yes Veronica, Irenes mangle will sit nice and level on the stone flags, and her backyard walls will be handy for hanging the tin bath.
Yes Mick, a mangle would make a lovely garden feature adorned with plants, so would the tin bath filled to the brim with plants, (if there is one). Grass is a good feature, but sparkling stone flags are as well. Plants will grow anywhere without a lawn. Some folk only have a balcony! The secret is to adapt what you have and make the most of it....as Alan says - that's my opinion.
Paving is nice with tubs and baskets full of colour. Gardening becomes easier then.....well at my age in does.
Yes Garry after six, sitting with a nice glass of sherry in a paved courtyard, me and Irene will join you as usual..
Get the rustic seats out ..lovely . x
It's a date, Dolly dear! Extra glasses, please, Garry. The girls are joining you! xx
We could have dancing on the terrace Irene and soft music.... Best not we might frighten him off.... ;o))
Wow promises promises lol,
I need a sherry or two or three or four..................
