When I took these photos it was a few weeks ago. A few weeks ago just before it started to rain. We had been to the garden centre and bought some new plants and then it started to rain and we went inside and put the plants in the kitchen.
The plants are still there, hoping they will be planted soon. The garden is happy and lush. I am happy. Because as you know, rain is my favourite weather. Right up there with crisp, clear Autumn mornings.
But the garden, she is happy. The bluebells are still in flower. The muscari still in bloom. My office looks out over the garden – I moved it down there so I could write, or sew, or take photos – while the girls play in the garden. The landlord was going to put a fancy bespoke fitted kitchen in a very long time ago. And while I do sort of wish he had, I’m also a little bit glad that I can get some work done in my old fashioned sun room and not be cooking in all modernity – while I look out into the lovely garden – now in its second year. It’s coming along very nicely.
And once it stops raining I’ll plant the rest of the plants and have a little bit of an update. Because it has grown a lot with all this wonderful watery weather in Drought stricken London.
