Tuesday at Two (9th July)

We are currently enjoying some gorgeous summer sunshine, with a warm breeze and the occasional fluffy white cloud bringing relief from the strong sun. And the forecast for the whole week is more of the same. Perfect!


The Sempervivum has been keeping me on tenterhooks, and then when I went to take the two o’clock photo I found this…

The Fate of the Sempervivum


I think the heat got to it! It was thus propped up ceremoniously….


…as I wanted to show you the first little flower that has opened. (A drum roll please!)


Its little cousin also opened yesterday, completely surprising me…


And these also look like they will open soon…


Has anything surprised you in your garden recently?
