Dam Beautiful

More visitors arrive today, so a quick post following on from yesterday’s. Luxuriate in these rich colours and profuse flowers! The lotus is peaking, Stuart has done two beautiful paintings of them for his next exhibition South-East North-Westย opening at Gallery Bodalla on 23rd January.

    • let’s just sit on the benches by the lily pond for ten minutes or so Charles, watching the dragonflies and listening to the cicadas and frogs …. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • thank you GM, no doubt you are enjoying seeing the colour and life of our summer weather … the lotus flowers are a bit outrageous, but we can all learn from that!

  1. What a treat they are! The dam’s just perfect for them and what a focal point it makes in the garden. I love it! And I particularly like the pristine temperate white – it’s like a perfect white camellia. Just gorgeous. Have a lovely day with your friends Christine.

    PS Happy New Year. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • yes, it looks as though you are expecting freezing cold air from the North Pole, an ‘epic cold air outbreak’ so bundle up and stay warm … so glad you enjoyed the colour ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. these are beautiful! the buds are thickening on various branches here, but they are definitely bare. which reminds me that i must check for where the snowdrops usually bloom, and see if they are showing any signs of reappearing yet. in the meantime, it is refreshing to see these cheerful blossoms. thanks for sharing.

    • it seems such a mystery that harsh conditions cause the plants to withdraw so totally … then they spring into life again as warmth returns … are you experiencing any of the big cold snap where you are Chris?

let's chat about this ...
