Just wanted to say...


Many thanks to all of you who have commented on my photos and have forgiven me for not commenting very much on yours! It’s not at all that I’m not interested! I’m someone who uses the computer during the day and falls into bed at 10 p.m., so in these very active garden months, I find myself short on time to sit and look and comment. This will change! :-)

My garden gives me deep satisfaction, and I am grateful to it for trying so hard to live up to my expectations. Even after the dreadful hailstorm we had 10 days ago, one of those which ruin crops (and peonies!).

I think of you all in your gardens, and that keeps me on my toes!

Best to all,

Nancy (lilycoton)

I was so intrigued by your reference to a hailstorm that I had to look you up and find out where you lived! In a different country, that explains that then. Hail on paeonies, oh dear, must have been very damaging.
