Mid-June – What a Delight!

Then followed that beautiful season… Summer….
Filled was the air with a dreamy and magical light; and the landscape
Lay as if new created in all the freshness of childhood.
~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

  1. Just beautiful – as I’ve looked around for inspiration on what to plant in my newly created garden here in Southern Scotland, I’ve been drawn to Japanese Willow, lupine, catmint and Lady’s Mantle! So to see them all growing together so beautifully reassures me that I’ve made the right choice and that over the next few seasons, my garden can aspire to look as wonderful as yours does 🙂
