|Lavender and Marguerite|
Then there is the white marguerite daisy, planning on being A Tree next year. The cuttings of scented pelargonium I shoved in, in desperation, around the plums are also blocking the path. Yesterday I cut an armful and put the vase in the bathroom. Says himself - that's a waste, no one can see them.
Today I cut another armful, but these are for the living-room. I wanted it loose and exuberant, not the twee little rose-bud I usually have, when the roses are in full swing. Some flowers set back, some coming forward. Looks good to me, but I struggle to get the camera to focus on a layer that appeals to me.
A little frustrated with learning to see what the camera sees. Looking at the last 3 posts of bloom-where-you-are-planted-Jen-bloom at Muddy Boot Dreams, what Jen achieves, composing and framing her pictures. And the bijou still lives by Ingrid at Of Spring and Summer. Lime green of her hops echoing Hazeltree's 'fair maiden of the woodland'. He in turn echoes the lavender and gravel paths but with oh so much more grace and charm! Oh well practice makes perfect. I'll keep trying.

Just a quick post this time. We went to Clanwilliam to see spring flowers and that I will share later this week.
