Survivers


These photographs are of bushes and plants that came through the upheavel of revamping my garden at the back of my home.


This clematis is at the front of the house, it is pink but looks rather mauve on the photo .





This peony always lays its flowers on the patio, yet another one a few feet away keeps it,s flower up proud of the leaves.
Regular readers of my blog will be familiar with the saga of the vintage tea cups that is likely to go on for maybe another 12 months. This teapot, milk jug, and sugar basin was surplus to requirements so was given to me by bluebell .
On the way home from our sewing circle yesterday, we popped into the age concern charity shop , two more cups and saucers wer added to the collection, there are now boxes and boxes of them. It is somthing like the Mad Hatters tea party, from Alice in Wonderland . A childrens book by Lewis Carroll .
