A full on day at work, followed by weeding the flower bed and mowing the half acre, left me with neither the time or energy for a run. Well, that’s my excuse anyway.
The flower bed at least brought some colour and joy, although I am perhaps, rather too fond of blue.

Love the flowers
Love your blue anemones. I’ve never had much success with anemones – or lupins either, as we’ve always lived on soil they don’t seem to like. A pity, as they’re such lovely cottage-garden flowers.
Gardening is pretty good exercise – much better to do that, than go running and let the garden get out of hand. 🙂
A lot of things get out of hand because of my running Hedwiga. Mainly a lot of tedious housework, it has to be said. I enjoy gardening, though.
Don’t anemones live in the sea? Clearly not. I think the weeding can count as cross-training RH.
Well, these anemones are land lubbers, Roy. Sea anemones are a type of animal., not that I was so sure-had to google for that bit of info.
Beautiful clematis! My parents have them climbing all over their garden
My favourite clematis a pink one that, unfortunately, hasn’t quite managed to take off in my garden.
My favorite color!
Ooh, such gorgeous flowers! Thank you for sharing.
Thanks, Sharon. Taking photographs of flowers has opened my eyes to their intense beauty, colour and variety.
My flower beds are The Blue Flower Bed, The Yellow, The Pink, and The Rocks. I love blue also. And I often consider weeding a proper substitute for running. Heaven knows the backs of my thighs certainly get a work out…all that bending!
Oh, your flower beds sound so interesting. Sounds like you’ve plenty of work with them too. I presume the Rocks is a rockery? It’s something I’d like to try in the next year or two. I’ve seen some lovely rockery plantings in my forays around other people’s gardens.
I am with you on blue….. beautiful 🙂
I used to have a Ceanothus bush-bet you recall those from your coastal Dublin days-fabulous blue flowers.
I must catch up on your posts as I have been out of circulation and had planned on beginning with oldest first, but when I saw these blue beauties I had to rethink! These are beautiful flowers, and how could you be too fond of blue? I hope you have loads more to share with us as the season progresses! They are just beautiful – thanks 🙂
Thanks, SV for your kind comments on my garden. I’m afraid the detail is more engaging than the whole but I live in hope of a good dahlia season.
I look forward to your Dahlias!
I’d better get the slugtox out, then!
