During this beautiful hot weather in Britain
I went for a short retreat
to Norfolk to Thetford Forest.
Our accommodation was very secluded, and really amazing.
So quiet and peaceful.
This is so recommendable, just relax and chill.
The Lynford Arboretum just next door,
perfect for our evening walks… trees everywhere.
We did lots of walking in the forest and at Lynford Waters.
At night. as there was no light pollution at all,
we even saw shooting Stars from the Perseid Meteor shower.
Even a short getaway is a great rest and energy giver.
My cornflowers are having more flowers.
They don’t only come in the deep blue as in this post
there are more colours now
then pink, light lilac and white came along.
They surprise me every day!
In March, before the virus,
I bought a bucket of soil and cornflower seeds from the supermarket,
as I like to grow things.
I was watching it carefully,
watering it on hot days.
It was growing nicely until June where it started to bloom,
and I could find blue flowers on it.
… and not just blue but also pink came along, how beautiful!
I enjoyed those Cornflowers every step on their way
to the full bloom in very vibrant colours.
Thank you for making my garden more colourful!
my favourite garden has been closed due to the circumstances.
I miss going there so much.
They have now re -opened with limited visitors going in
and you have to book a time slot.
Unfortunately I have to take the train to get there and
I am not quite prepared to do that just yet.
So I went through my pictures from previous visits
and enjoyed a stroll through.
Here is what I found:
(pictures previously not published, taken by me in Kew Gardens)
… it does say Red Dragon….. 🙂
and something smelly
Yes, it was really smelly. What an amazing plant.
Hope you enjoyed my little walk through time, colours and the garden.
Please click on the pictures to enlarge them.
Pictures are from visits during the last 2 years.
This little plant is standing next to my computer screen.
I received it as a get well present last year in October.
It was in full bloom then.
I nurtured it and loved it even when only green.
Now as a thank you for June just ready for my Birthday
it gives me more blooms.
♥ Thank you my little flower ♥

During my visit in my garden – Mini Kew
I didn’t show you all my handmade art
which makes my garden more colourful.
Different Wind chimes, made with beads
made with shells
Brush lettering on wood
These give me smiles and happiness in my garden.
I am so grateful to have such a wonderful oasis,
to have nature so close to me.
