The Garden: A Twelve Month Reprise













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.

  1. Gorgeous, always!

  2. It certainly looked amazing in June. The drought didn’t do much for it, but yours was only two months which isn’t very long. We have six months of no rain every winter and droughts can last for two years.

  8. Lovely to see the same view over the seasons. I was just thinking it didn’t change as much as I was expecting – and then I came to December!

    A feast for the eyes, Geoff. Thank you! I especially like the last winter photo, which must be a rare scene where you are. You got more than a dusting!

      It’s probably three years since we had the Beast from the East which covered us in Siberian snow; it all depends on the course of the jet stream as to what we get.

        Exactly! I love how you name the snow event, the Best from the East. One blasted winter we had to buy a roof rake. I’d never heard of such a thing, even after living here for a long time. It’s lightweight (until to get it on the roof), and it pulls the snow off so your roof doesn’t cave in. Really. Yes, scary.

        Oh heavens. I hope I don’t need one here. My roof is about forty foot up!!

        Ooops, Beast, not Best. I do hope you never, ever need a roof rake. Fortunately we have a one-story house.

    No luck is involved as you all have worked hard to have such a wonderful garden. The last photo is impressive, and there is one certainly with our weather: unpredictability.

    I am impressed not only by the garden but by the fact that you remembered to take a shot from the same spot every month for a year.

    Wow! Looks great all year round. December was a shock to the system though. Perhaps you can use that as your Christmas card next year!
