. . And so it goes around...new shoots! . Well it's my first Instagram birthday and these sedum shoots were the subject of my first ever post... . I'd love to say something meaningful about the journey since then, about the lovely people I've met along the way, but with this hangover it's just not happening. Sorry 😄 . Happy New Year! 😘 . #newyear #hanging #sedumspectabile #winter #wintergarden #gardenphotography #instagarden #mydailygarden #mygardentoday #mygarden #cottagegarden #countrygarden #instanature #myordinaryparadise #gardening #gardenersofinstagram #garden #flowers #nature #flowersmakemehappy #moody_nature #perennial #nothingisordinary #happyplaces

The marigolds are on their knees and the sedums, well, they just did one! 🥀 . But Rozanne...how you aim to please! Hats off to Geranium Titanium.

. . The cotinus is one of my favourite shrubs. Later than most in the spring it unfurls to display deep plummy purple foliage which I think is the perfect foil for all the surrounding fresh green leaves. The fluffy flowers follow in billowing clouds from where it derives the name 'smoke bush'. But for me it is now, in the autumn, that this beauty really starts to smoulder, and my love for it is rekindled!🔥

I do have a soft spot for the majestic pineapple broom, with its velvety silver leaves and those incredible scented blooms. And I had never seen a Californian tree poppy before. Finding them together here in the shelter of an old walled garden, not far from home, was for me, something a bit special! . #cytisusbattandieri #pineapplebrooch #californiantreepoppy #romneyacoultera #houghtonlodgegardens #instagarden #magicmoments #myordinaryparadise #gardening #hampshiregarden #flowerfix #flowerporn #moody_nature #gardenersofinstagram #gardeningmakesmehappy #masters_in_artistry #nothingisordinary #flowersmakemehappy #gw2for1

. I was stopped in my tracks in a fallow field stippled with azure blue. Common chicory. I'd never seen it before, and knowing it now, I see it everywhere!

. It's my first year growing artichokes from seed...and I know the received wisdom is to chop off the buds to allow them to establish. But really, how could I without first seeing those beautiful flowers!

The windflower doesn't give up! Battered by time and tide, this anemone lilts and tilts on its axis, tracking a luminous ecliptic overhead.

The light is fading. The coyote begin to howl from beyond the dusty edged fields of echinacea... . Meanwhile, in my little prairie it's been raining all day. Brrrr...

. The Like Machine is a noisy, busy and bustling place. Sometimes I think of seals on an empty shoreline applauding each other to infinity. Sometimes the churn invites my inner hamster to run the squeaky wheel. But sometimes it reveals magical moments in far flung lives that touch my own. And it makes me keep pedalling.

On the verge of a final flourish of late summer loveliness! Six feet tall magenta asters 🌸 (or symphyotrychum novi-belgii, apparently 😏).

The front hedge needs trimming...badly! It looks great if you cut it every three days! 🙄 I guess you could politely say it's a country hedge...a mix of privet, hazel, hawthorn, holly, lilac. Really it's a bit of a mongrel! And this suckering snowberry... popping up everywhere! It doesn't so much consider itself part of the hedge, it just wants a starring role generally! But the bees are going mad for the tiny pink flowers. So I'm leaving it for another day or two. That's my excuse 😏

Under the trees and amongst the shuttlecock ferns, the Japanese anemones nod their cool faces in the gloom. Like so many flowers of late summer, their blooms seem to implore you to stay in the moment and to ignore the nervous baton waving in the neverending relay race of the seasons.

. 'Clouds are not spheres, mountains are not cones, coastlines are not circles, and bark is not smooth, nor does lightning travel in a straight line... . Everything is roughness, except for the circles. How many circles are there in nature? Very, very few. The straight lines. Very few shapes are very, very smooth. But geometry had laid them aside because they were too complicated.' . Mandelbrot and those perfect simple spheres of geometry...like echinops. Until you look more closely!

I don't like the scratchy foliage or the way it flops just as it flowers. I like the idea of Pimms more than the taste. Wimbledon is over, it's chilly out there this evening. But with those baby blue eyes, who can resist a little borage?! 💙

The Japanese anemones are poised and glowing on another dank day in a British summer. These flowers are for me a bittersweet reminder that the high season is cresting. And whilst there is still much to look forward to, there is a feeling that the wind has changed. The garden is suspended, but the waning is inevitable. Of course, as in all things, we treasure each moment all the more, for it is fleeting.

The Dorset coast was sprinkled with wild flowers yesterday. Scabious, clover, thyme, vetch... and big wild cabbages dotted about. I wanted to take a photo of some beautiful delicate little campanula clinging to the cliff. But the wind was blowing and the harebells were ringing! Nevermind, the greater knapweed was quietly enjoying the view! . #wishyouwerehere #knapweed #centaureascabiosa #wildflowers #coastalflowers #oldharryrocks #coast #coastalflowers #seascape #nature #beachfinds #nothingisordinary #instanature #myordinaryparadise #naturegarden #flowersmakemehappy #learnfromnature #beachcomber #beach

One of my minarette fruit trees is an apple. I forget the variety, but it's early and one of the sweetest you'll find. Unfortunately for me, you'll find them on the ground. I am way down the pecking order! The blackbirds have already had a go. Followed by the wasps and the ants. And this little Green Bottle. A right poser.

There is queue to drink and to wash in my wildlife pond. I'm sure the blackbirds are spinning it out in there! Goldfinches, sparrows, wrens, all lovely. But five fat pigeons just sitting in the water? This pond has become a municipal lido for nature's great unwashed! So here comes the blanket weed. The nutrient levels are rising, the hot sun is cooking. And my poor water lily is suffering. . #redundantbirdbath #waterlily #pond #wildlifepond #lovelydeadcrap #wildlifegarden #instagarden #inmygarden #happyplace #mygardentoday #mygarden #cottagegarden #countrygarden #myordinaryparadise #gardening #hampshiregarden #gardenersofinstagram #nature #gardeningmakesmehappy #nothingisordinary
