Twilight garden

On Wednesday evening we made the most of the short-lived summer weather and went to Jay's mum's house for tea. 

We sat outdoors and drank apple and elderflower juice, and I wandered around with the camera snapping some of the flowers.

There are lots of pastel shades: periwinkle blue, baby pink, lilac, white... and they all took on a luminosity as the sun moved behind the house. Our garden at home is like an explosion in a paint factory. Crazy bright colours everywhere. We didn't really go down the tasteful route this year.

I liked that there were soft colours in the pebbles and shells around the garden too. They complemented the plants.

And I love the markings on these miniature iris.

Naturally, someone else was appreciative of the space to crawl and the opportunity to make new discoveries. The cat wasn't so sure.

Hope you have a nice weekend. We're planning a quiet one. Creativity, cooking and slowing things down after a busy week.

    1. It's nice to let him loose. And he's very interested in cats at the moment (unfortunately for them).

      This one isn't very friendly but seemed quite submissive. It didn't really know what to make of a miniature human!
