…but not as you expect Jim! LOL… I’m guessing I’m not the only Blogger that plays on words for post titles. Plant lovers… this one’s for you! For everyone else, it’s Friday night… scroll past the photos and enjoy the video. Thanks OH, that’s just what I was thinking of!
Yep… all eyes at the moment are on signs of Spring… but let me take you back to a dusky September evening around 4.30pm. Let me take you back to the Early Flowering Border (see map REF 10) at Cambo. There were crocus… Autumn ones planted with Hosta. See how they gathered around a tree trunk…
For those who crave flowers during early February, there were…
Okay, for those outside the UK I often post quite late in the evening. Well, usually around midnight and therefore many of my fellow UK bloggers don’t get to see my postings on the day.
I’ll cut to the chase. I’m not going to chat on tonight so this will actually get published before midnight. Also, for those who love naturalistic perennial plantings I’ll let you enjoy them and invite you to tell me your favs and why.
In all honesty, I could ramble on and on through every single photo about exactly what I absolutely love about these plantings. In short, I love shape, colour, foliage, flower and texture. Movement, punctuation marks, flow they are all there.
This is really taking great restraint… really it is! It’s Friday night… enjoy the picture show 🙂 Oh yes… if you click on photos they will enlarge.
For me, selecting and cropping these photos tonight just took my breath away once more. I absolutely love these plantings. Now, I have posted on Cambo before and tonight I intended this posting to be the tie up one. Oh… but I’ve just got too many photos I can’t bear not to include 😮
Okay, I’m going to deem this my Cambo weekend and tomorrow and Sunday I will post more photos with a tie up later on Sunday evening. Yep… if you’ve a cold, damp or dull weekend ahead please join me with a step back to September.
LOL… for the plant lovers and non gardeners alike the video below is the link to my post title. Yep… it has a ‘StarTrek’ theme completely unrelated to the photos I’ve posted. The line “It’s life Jim but not as you know it” simply just came into my head when I started to write this. This happens with me sometimes, goodness knows where these ideas come from 🙂
Did that not just make you smile… I do hope so! Enjoy your weekend 😀
All photos of an early flowering border above were taken by me on a visit to Cambo during September 2009.
