Garden Delights

Standard

Messing about in the garden became a snapshot project.

It started with an early-morning bath.

Cactus – with perfectly symmetrical flowers that last for just a day.

Colourful flowers bob about in the breeze.

Foxgloves, mouths wide open to entice bumble bees; their insides look like a splishy-splashy artist has been at work.

Poppies, delicate, as if made out of paper.

Lush green hostas relishing a misting of water.

Hosta

And not a slug or snail nibbling in site.  Absolutely nothing to do with garden pesticides.  The pots have an overhanging lip that the slugs and snails are unable to negotiate.  Instead, they snooze under the lip.  They’re happy.  The hostas are happy.  The gardener is delighted.   Hostas, birdlife, hedgehogs, and even pesky slugs and snails all benefit and live happily ever after.
