Purple sun

The clematis next to our covered bench opened today. I planted it to go over the roof of the bench. I don’t know why I didn’t realise that it would head towards the sun. Instead of covering the bench…

… it is cuddling up to the fig. Funny thing is I think the clematis has the right idea.

The children are still talking about our trip yesterday to the Lavender farm. AJ suggested that we start a new family tradition. This involved going to the lavender farm again as a family. Sounds good. A bit like our annual bluebell walk. No, she was actually looking for it to happen a bit more often, like every weekend. I think it has hit a chord with them all.

We will go back, as I want to measure the dome part of the willow tunnel, as I think I’ve found the perfect place to do that in our garden.

    There’s a great willow dome at the junior school nearby. Several children can fit in it at a time and it looks really good when the leaves are out.

      I’d really like to have a go at making one, but I will have to wait until Autumn.

    Clematis are wonderful aren’t they and your picture is very beautiful. The willow dome sounds like fun the children would love it.
