The Garden – Mid July 2019

I’m not sure this place has ever been so colourful. A lot of it is accidental but that makes it all the more splendid. And dotted around are examples of nature that are well just delightful…

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.

    Your garden is magnificent, Geoffle. Sure you didn’t go off to the Botanical Gardens and apply a bit of creative licence? I should pinch your photos and claim them as my own garden. Ours is a wreck. That said we did some pruning and that’s all being churned through the woodchipper. So, at least we’ve done something. I’m thinking of filling pots with red geraniums which are almost impossible to kill.
    Best wishes,

  6. Cosmos and snaps are some of my favorites. What is that critter with the pincers, Geoff? I wouldn’t want to come across him while planting! lol

  7. Yes, the colour is wonderful but so is the big black bug sitting atop the tortoise – I wonder if either knows of the others existence…….
