The Neglected Garden in Flower

There are daisies and irises.

There is pink may,

and Mexican hawthorn.

There are velvety clematis buds,

and old world honeysuckle twining with New Zealand's forest bridal veil.

There's heady-scented mock orange blossom,

and lingering longer this year, with regular rainfall, 
are the forget-me-nots by my doorstep.

Lovely ... puts some Spring in my otherwise grey overcast lightly snow covered morning. Thank you for sharing your Colour and Beauty.

Neglect has a lot going for it. Absolutely beautiful.

Cindy@NW: Yes the seasons move on and it's the Southern Hemisphere's turn to remind the Winter bound Northern Hemisphere that there will always be a Spring. :-)

Rusty Duck: I reckon!

The plants don't look neglected they look gorgeous.

that first photo is a delight
and blogger shit or not don't you dare stop!!!!

Jeneane said...

Susan Heather: Thank you - they don't really need me do they.

John Gray: But it sounds like you do. Maybe we should make a pact with a forfeit included if either of us gives up blogging...

Maybe I should neglect my garden a bit more. I DO have a Mock-Orange.

Jeneane said...

Cro: I'm sure I've seen a photo of it on your blog. I do think you get the balance of artful rambliness just right with your plantings.

Well that garden looks just lovely...I could imagine sitting there with a picnic and feeling very calm and happy.....looking out at my green and grey back garden just makes me sigh at the moment.

Libby: It is a very calm and happy space, but you wouldn't believe it; today I might as well have been in your season. Cold, damp, blowsy spatters of rain - very appropriate for Bonfire Night.
