Quintessential Blakeney

It is my favourite time of year in Blakeney. The bunting is out on the quay, and tall spires away in breeze, lining the narrow roads and decorating the cobbled walls. That’s right, it hollyhock season. Bonzo and I took a tour this morning. Here is what we found.

The Summer Solstice

So, today being the summer solstice I thought I might post some photies of how the courtyard garden is coming along. While everything is a bit late this year, nothing is diminished, and we are ever that much more grateful. So here is a feast for the eyes, and soul.20130621-152051.jpg

Spring

Image

Ask and yea shall receive! Four, count them, four days of sun! Never mind the 20mi/hr winds and the brief snowfall yesterday morning, because there have been four gloriously sunny days.This week has been a balm for the winter weary soul. And to celebrate I thought I would post some pics of the courtyard garden bulbs that I planted over the course of several years stretching to meet the sun. New beginnings and spring! Image
