Glorious bees thrive on electric blue filament like petals,

Glowing in a golden sea of pollen.

This wonderful structured plant, Cynara, like a giant artichoke has electric blue petals, however morning light and exposure has made them purple!

After a long period of very hot weather for the UK, the garden has welcomed rain and a cooler period, as I have deadheaded and weeded I have noticed bees and butterflies more often. My lawn is the colour of straw and probably won’t recover this summer.

I hope you are having a god day. Apologies for my go slow blogging at the moment due to disruption in routine as the builders have been at home. The resulting conservatory needs decorating and furnishing but has brought so much light inside the cottage, and I can enjoy changing weather, sunrises and sunsets as well as starry nights from inside!

Delightful dahlia melody

Delightful dahlia melody,

Sunshine melting

Majestic petals.

Honey bee settles.

Honeysuckle feast

Honeysuckle’s
Honey fingers,
Dipped in prickly
Pink sugar,
Drizzling deliciously
Over a glorious cup cake.
Honey bees satiated,
Hawk moths furtively
Feasting at midnight,
As honeysuckle
Releases
Heavenly perfume.

Symbiotic summer


image

Shades of green
Like shimmering silk
Butterflies flirt,
Dandelion clocks burst.
Honey bees thirst
For heaven’s blossom.
Hedgerows protect
Plump, ripening
Pastures.
Can you hear
The symbiosis of
Nature’s symphony?
