UFO’s for the girls!

The sun has shone in the UK over the last week and this has been very rare this last month.  I feel that the garden is well behind on ‘maintenance’ and the rain has only led to more dangerously, slippy decking.  After a full weekend spent jet washing/blasting it the slime is gone as well as the odd terracotta pot that felt the force.

Swept and painted the decks will be preserved for a few more years which is a financial relief as there is so much of it. We are so lucky to have a lovely designed space which includes a haven we call our ‘tea house’. A Japanese influenced space where we trot down the garden with that glass of red and enjoy the evening sun.

While technically a UFO refers to any unidentified flying object the joy I found today in the garden leaped out and reminded me of UFO’s…

The hydrangea plant at a soggy, dark part of the garden is popping with flowers.  In the three years we have been in our home I have tendered, chopped and fed this hydrangea and had no flowers on it, just ample green, lush leaves.  So I am very giddy about this mass of flowers and enjoying every perfect petal and bloom.

UFO's for the ladies!

UFO’s for the ladies! How pretty is nature?!! x

But hey, they  totally look like flying saucers as their centre buds aren’t open yet but their petals at the edges are so I name these

“UFO’s for the ladies”

as they hover over the pond.

Love & all things real!

One thought on “UFO’s for the girls!

  1. The hydrangea bushes at school in the quad have been a real delight this year. Alternating downpours and sunshine must be the ideal climate for this shrub!
