Hazy mid-May update

It’s been pretty rainy here in Cambridge this fortnight, and the gardens have loved it! Looking around each day it is as though the plants have grown substantially overnight. I wandered around the garden during a break in the rainfall earlier and took some slightly hazy photographs of things which have changed this week…

Clematis ‘Guernsey Cream’ in all its glory.
This Geum ‘Totally Tangerine’ is quite leggy but beautiful.
Here come the alliums…I’m excited to see these bloom soon.
It’s wonderful to spot wildlife around the garden: someone’s enjoying perching on this delphinium.
The beginnings of Achillea are so interesting – woolly, pale and quite in contrast to the resulting flower head.

I’m writing this on a Friday evening as I’m aiming to have a digital break this weekend. It’s been a very busy work week and, despite attending a couple of great mindfulness sessions and doing plenty of yoga, I’m worn out 😴

In the coming days I’m looking forward to publishing a story on the work of botanical artist Clare Halifax, and also sharing some thoughts on awe-walking in nature.

Wishing you a good weekend.

Until next time,

🌞 Katherine
