I made a rather startling discovery last night – in the course of a computer glitch in September I seem to have lost quite a lot of photographs that I took earlier in the year. That’s a ‘Western’ kind of ‘problem’, isn’t it?
However – I’ve just received a cheering message from a friend wishing me bonne fête! It’s Saint Catherine’s day again (your saint’s day is as important as your actual birthday in France). We say here: À la Sainte Catherine, tout bois prend racine. In other words: if you plant a shrub or tree today, it will do very well. Get out and plant folks!
Here are some pictures of the wilder area in the Hornbeam Gardens, which actually started to look rather special (rather than just messy!) this year for the first time.
Go and have a look at Cathy’s blog at ‘Words & Herbs’ for more uplifting flower portraits.
And have a good Wednesday!
