The Garden – The First Half of July #garden #colour

Sometimes, the garden feels rather fallow in July.The poppies have finished and the sunflowers are just budding. Day lilies come and go with disarming rapidity. But still, the dahlias have made it and are beginning to explode, the drought fears have receded with pulses of welcome rain – even the lawn has perked up. And the vegetable section of the potager has bee fantastic. Indeed the combination of calendular and cornflower has been a revelation. So enjoy… oh and if you make it to the end there’s Dog and a short Vicky video for her admirers…

And Dog…?

And Vicky…

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.

    Glorious colours, Geoff. Slugs ate my dahlias and only a few bedraggled, munched-at specimens survived.
