When the ball sleeps it dreams it is a Frisbee

Feeling refreshed, so here's what should have been posted yesterday, with an added bonus third part to make up for the fact that I will be busy tonight in an inquisitorial role administering a quiz what I have wrote to the bibulous peons populating the Rose & Crown.

Part one is in Deepest Devon in the dim and distant, trying to get over its tractorial trysts...

Part three goes on odyssey to That London, involving here a rainy trip northwards through the city's ripped backsides, in a car driven by Kropotkin.

Today's batch feature the June garden in part one, and quite a bit of sky-gazing in part two

Image
Full Throttle
Sometime around the end of May and the beginning of June, the garden moves through the gears, and I
suddenly realize it's got away from me. I get caught every time.

In the Pink
A particularly floriferous and wonderfully fragrant Dianthus. The clove scent's so strong that I put the pot on the wall beside the steps so that it is at hooter height.
