This is a beautiful sunset we had about a week ago. It was one of those ethereal moments where the colour from the clouds reflects back and gives everything a rosy glow. I ran outside because I just had to be in it, experiencing the colour for as long as it lasted.
The lavatera is growing tall and spreading. I cut this shrub back every couple of weeks it seems, to keep it in check, so I've taken some cuttings and I'll probably replace it in autumn with a smaller version of itself.
My gypsophila is a beautiful pink cloud, half obscuring the potted lonicera. I love the softness of the cloud next to the tall spires of lambs' ears.
On a warm afternoon I decided to relax with a magazine, some crochet and views of the garden. It was lovely and peaceful, and I worked my stitches and daydreamed some garden ideas and watched as some clouds rolled in.
And within a few minutes my sun umbrella had become a rain umbrella. Oh well, nice while it lasted right...
I had to go inside and admire the garden views from the windows. At least I didn't need to water anything that day!
