garden state july

there are wild strawberries to be savoured,
IMG_1845
there's and abundance of gorgeous red roses
(their only flaw complete lack of scent),
IMG_1828
strange creatures with even
stranger pink attachments.

then you saw it, now you don't.
instead there's a ghostly vision visible
(to the botton right).
bye, bye lilac hedge for this season...

purple clematis has began to bloom,
IMG_1843
and so has the white.

the omnipresent garden watchers.
who needless to say are quite comforting,
for a lot of reasons.

the strangest thing of all though,
is the discovery of a tiny strawberry plant
- five berries so far -
that saw it fit to plant roots in a patch,
without specific invitation.

Lovely summer with flora and berries. Goodbye dear Lilac you have been sweet. A beautiful, gregarious pair, watching the garden. I love their faces, so much character. I really would like to know their names.

Thanks, Titania. As for the watchers, the red one is Knut, the blue-white one is Rutger. And the cream one above is Eulalia, who is actually the older sister of Knut as well as grandmother of Rutger...:)
