May, The Garden Grows #garden #dog #May2021

Another month, this one cold with a warm end. The colour we hoped for has been postponed and should make itself apparent in June when we will begin the planting for the wedding. Some of the structure we envisage will become apparent then. Still that’s for next time.

So what has it looked like?

In the first half we had some nice days and things began to appear…

Of course I’ve had my lawn worries, but really, for now, it’s all going okay (please, please don’t say I’ve peaked too soon…)

In the second half we’ve seen more sign of irises and aliums, more colour generally…

And then there’s Dog…

And as a prelude to the summer, I’ve even had the moth trap out, with a few specimens… more to follow…

So it’s good bye from me (and him)…

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.

  8. It’s looking beautiful Geoff and, I’m sure, will be an absolute joy to behold on “the day”. You just need Dog to pray to the weather gods now. (He can do that with his eyes closed.)

    What a gorgeous garden. I love allium and iris. So many things don’t do well here because of the heat, although we did have iris in our former garden. Our new house is just blasted with sun, so until the trees we planted grow, no iris.
