We’ve just enjoyed three lovely weeks of Ma Kettle visiting us. It’s been delightful having her company; we don’t seem to have done much, but we seem to have been busy. Weird how that happens.
I took Ma home on Friday, settled her back into her home, did food shopping to make sure she won’t starve(!) and reluctantly made my way home again on Saturday. Before I left I did a tour of her garden. Ma was able to stay with us for so long because her wonderful friends drew up a roster for watering; it’s already been a hot Summer with very little in the way of wet stuff from the sky. It’s terribly dry up there already, looking more like the end of March than the beginning of January. I was amazed at how hard it is on the eyes, not realising that until I was back in suburbia looking at our beautiful, lush green trees in our streets, so refreshing and cool to look at.
Anyway, Ma’s garden……
This pretty geranium is doing well in a pot
I did an “Anne” and took an arty shot of this dried head
This final pic is more for the macramé hanger than the maiden hair fern.
