August #garden

This year the garden has excelled itself. With the Vet’s marriage and her getting ready at home it was extra primped this month.

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 simply a dream! I have started remodeling my garden and want to fill it with an abundance of flowers from spring to fall and with some special theme corners. You made me look even more forward to it!

    People would pay money to get married in your yard. Maybe a new idea for a story.

    Geoffle, I have a few questions about this lawn of yours. Firstly, it is so bright green that this poor Australian more accustomed to the ravages of drought and sandy soil, had to apply sunglasses. However, what really intrigues me are these patterns in the lawn. These have not become a thing down under probably because most of our lawns are dead or half dead and mowing of any sort would be the final blow. At first I thought you might’ve had a bit too much champagne with the wavy lines happening but then there was the checkerboard look and I thought we might just be able to have a game of chess.
    As you can gather, I haven’t mastered the art of the lawn and I must also inquire how you can have a dog and a perfect lawn. Have you taken your dog to some kind of mind control master which has curtailed the impulse to dig? I don’t know what our dog/dogs were looking for when they started on the tunnel today but if it was closer to the fence, they might’ve pulled off the great escape despite the chicken wire around the fence line. I must remember to photograph that hole tomorrow. I think it was one of the best/worst depending on your perspective. My Geoff is not so appreciative of their exuberant efforts.
    On that note, I’d better get to bed. Some of us don;t have a lawn good enough to sleep on.
    Best wishes,
    PS Did you see my last week’s post of my day by Sydney Harbour? I guess you could say we have a different type of lawn…a blue one.

    Hi Geoffle,
    After seeing your garden yesterday, I felt compelled to post a photo of a massive hole one of the dogs dug in our backyard yesterday and you can see how poor the soil is in the photo. I had to make a mention of your beautiful paradise and it raised a question about why England is the green and pleasant land while the Australian landscape almost seems cursed. That said, today I was out on our “blue lawn”. That was absolutely magnificent and ample compensation.
    Here’s the link:
    Best wishes,
