I love my Lady’s Mantel plant in the garden, it’s several years old. This past summer was the first time it bloomed and I was delighted as the flowers are both interesting and lovely. But the plant has been badly eaten during it’s last growing period, I hope that now it can revive a bit as I will be cutting down some of the damaged leaves. Meanwhile though, it’s lovely to see the magic that the rain drops create on these leaves, and with the sun shining there are sparkles all around.
“A thing of beauty is a joy forever.” John Keats
“Though we travel the world over to find the beautiful, we must carry it with us, or we find it not.”
Ralph Waldo Emerson
“To be creative means to be in love with life. You can be creative only if you love life enough that you want to enhance its beauty, you want to bring a little more music to it, a little more poetry to it, a little more dance to it.” Osho
This is the humble wild garlic, a most beautiful plant.
Bought this plant when a seedling as part of salad leaves tray, I planted it out and have enjoyed it all summer, I did not eat it as it has got such beautiful colours, it’s still going strong.
Cucumbers growing still.
And my Lemon Balm plant – love the tea!
Experimenting with Dandelion leaves and roots, I roosted the roots and it went wrong, I burnt them 😦 but the leave dried out well. Great to use in soups and for tea too.
