The Garden – Mid June 2022 #garden

It’s been a bit mixed and today it’s nearing 30C with 34C threatened tomorrow making it one of the hottest June days on record. The colours, though have been stunning and while I’ve let the lawn grow shaggy to preserve it against browning off, everything else seems to be thriving for now. Cooler, nearer average temperatures are due this weekend we hope.

I think I’ll leave the pictures to speak for themsleves.

And Dog?

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. You could charge admission! And of course, for a bit more, a private audience with Dog!! ❤


  3. The photographs spoke very well of the gardening team, mostly! Some of the roses, however, complained that you were occasionally a little too keen to dead head when they still felt they had a couple of days left to give! Dog said “Ruff.”

  4. A walk in your garden would lead me to believe all is right in the world. See the photos gives the same impression but not as firmly. Thanks for sharing.

    Doth that last photo indicate a lessening of the lawn? Dog looks a mite tired in his closeups … perhaps bored? 🙂
