Garden Update, 27th July – One Month To Go

While detailed discussions continue about a cheese offering, the format for speeches and how to ensure the bridesmaids make it to and from the Church, the Textiliste and I are, once again, obsessing over the garden.

Gradually all the planting is beginning to fill the beds we’ve prepared…

The runway

The ciabatta bed

The triangle…

Some sunflowers which were all self sown, albeit moved into better positions have begun to explode

Along with godetias, fox lillies, black eyed susans, sweet peas and geraniums.

Even the lawns are behaving, as a result of the sun and rain combo we’ve enjoyed and the troubling top lawn has had another dose of lawn conditioner which has been rained in – well done, nature.

And, well here are a few setting shots – not the tomato trolley is filling nicely….

Here’s some other colour splashes

Dog, meanwhile keeps an eye out for unwelcome crows and parakeets and foxes

The boys have developed ready for the big day – see them in 2016 and now…

And Vicky ponders the cucumber/grape dilemma….

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.

  2. Looking fantastic Geoff. If you need a taster to help with the cheese selection my fees are very, very affordable!

    The garden looks fabulous. I would suggest you pick up that rake before the special day to avoid any slapstick accidents. As funny as it may be on the wedding video, not everyone may be laughing.

    My gosh, it’s going to be spectacular. Will you do this much work afterward? I see Dog has given it his vote of approval.

    You continue to make me feel guilty—well, not guilty enough to get out there and get my yard into this kind of shape.🤣 Somehow, I can’t see you letting it all go to hell after the wedding.
