Rocking Hollyhocks


Rocking Hollihocks

Rocking Hollyhocks,

Like nodding, bobbing dollies.

They frollick from every folly, hedge

And cottage.

I just love these wonderful old cottage garden flowers that are nodding and bopping about from almost every garden around Bedfordshire. These were smiling at me from a cottage garden in the village of Cardington.

Enjoy ­čÖé

Wistful Wisteria


Beautiful Wisteria perfuming the gentle breeze coming in through the cottage window.

Beautiful Wisteria perfuming the gentle breeze coming in through the cottage window.

Make a wish whilst

Wistfully wandering

Amongst Wisteria,

As it twists

And tumbles over

A humble door.

Bumblebees soar

After collecting the

Delicate nectar:

A misty mead

perfume.

Serene Saturday: Cerulean Cornflowers

Cerulean cornflowers

Sedately soaring like

Sapphire stars;

Touring tourmaline

Skies.

An old Egyptian legend tells us that ┬átourmaline, on its way up from the centre of the earth, passed over a rainbow. So that’s why ┬áit is still referred to as the ‘gemstone of the rainbow’.

Toumaline in crystal therapy is known to heal the mind.

Soulful Roses

Lover’s tipsy posies

They sip dewy petal potions

As their rouched lips

Whisper

A tryst…

Betroval.

Chintzy courtyard,

Ritzy lilies,

Hints of lemon tart

Wistfully wafting,

China chiming,

Parchment parasol shadows,

Jelly coloured geraniums,

Mellow ruby port hydrangeas,

Sweet pea treats,

Tea rose wreaths.
