Friends’ Garden

068

My good friends Jo and Terry invited me to lunch the other day so I went armed with my camera cos I knew they had some beautiful flowers and shrubs in their lovely garden. The image above shows some ‘keys’ hanging on the red-leaved Acer they have growing in a tub. Jo told me this is the first year they’ve appeared.

This is a gorgeous Meconopsis – Himalayan Poppy … isn’t it a heavenly blue?

And finally – an Anemone de Caen – one of my all time favourites cos they come in such jewel-like colours. Please forgive the stem cutting across – it was unavoidable!

How blessed we are to have such a wonderful Creator, who has provided for our aesthetic needs as well as our material necessities. To quote part of  Philippians 4:8:  Whatsoever things are …. LOVELY … think on these things. (Especially if you’re feeling ‘down’).

bye for now,   Eileen

I don’t get out and about very much, so it was a really nice photo opportunity  when my good friends, Jean & Harry, took me to Wakehurst Place for the day. It has a little Mansion , beautiful grounds and several ponds/lakes etc.  These are just some of the pics to give a flavour…..
