Visual Treat #garden #photos

Derrick Knight teases and taunts me with his photographs of his garden. It is beautiful and an oasis and, well, an inspiration. So here are a few shots from the early blooms to maybe bring a smile on a Friday.

About TanGental

My name is Geoff Le Pard. Once I was a lawyer; now I am a writer. I've published several books: a four book series following Harry Spittle as he grows from hapless student to hapless partner in a London law firm; four others in different genres; a book of poetry; four anthologies of short fiction; and a memoir of my mother. I have several more in the pipeline. I have been blogging regularly since 2014, on topic as diverse as: poetry based on famous poems; memories from my life; my garden; my dog; a whole variety of short fiction; my attempts at baking and food; travel and the consequent disasters; theatre, film and book reviews; and the occasional thought piece. Mostly it is whatever takes my fancy. I avoid politics, mostly, and religion, always. I don't mean to upset anyone but if I do, well, sorry and I suggest you go elsewhere. These are my thoughts and no one else is to blame. If you want to nab anything I post, please acknowledge where it came from.

  5. A glorious garden. What is it about flowers that make us smile, relax, breathe in? Is it their vibrant color; strength or fragility; innocence or perfume? Sigh.
    Wonderful, wonderful photos. Spectacular garden. πŸ™‚

    Hello Geoff, Your garden is wonderful, your hostas are to die for, when in London I could not grow hostas as I appeared to have the national collection of snails and slugs residing in my garden. Thankyou.


  9. Great photos, Geoff, of a lovely garden. You must see ours one day
