  1. Gorgeous! Isn’t it Beningborough that was being revitalised by one of the celeb gardeners, or am I confusing it with somewhere else? I’ve only been there once, long ago. Happy Saturday, Margaret! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

  2. It’s reappeared here as well. We’re currently at Legoland having a breather at 6 year old’s birthday treat. It’s baking hot and I can’t begin to describe the grimness of the journey. Great time had by all!

    1. You’ll be tireder than me then. I’m just back from another Stop the Coup Rally in Leeds, when a couple of the angriest and most articulate proponents of The Cause were Tories, though all parties had their say, and others such as Graffiti Granny from Wakefield. A good day!


      1. Not a-l-w-a-y-s. An American band came to play in our village – there’s a good music school. As the only Anglophones in the village, we were asked to interpret at the inevitable reception. Several glasses of wine down the line, I listened carefully to our French host, and equally carefully summed up his words to the American conductor. ‘Do you know’, remarked the American ‘that you have been talking to me exclusively in French?’ Epic fail.

  3. Lovely to see that summer is not over yet. The butterflies and flowers complement each other so well.

    Have just looked up the “graffiti granny” you mention. How considerate of her to use chalk – kind of like a graffiti version of snapchat?


  4. Hi Margaret,
    This is a great gallery! By coincidence, I was finishing a draft of a post about Painted Ladies in our garden when I saw you’d commented on my burlap photo, and was able to add a link to your blog so everyone could enjoy what you’d “collected” in yours. I hope summer hangs on a bit longer, but autumn seems to be in a hurry. Cheers.


  5. Gorgeous photos and all those yellow blooms obviously appealing to different kinds of butterflies. The single yellow dahlia with the spicy orange centre and bronze leaves makes for a great visual combination with the butterflies.
