I had about 23,000 photos on iPhoto, which, not surprisingly, has been slowing my MacBook down! Over the past weeks, I have been having a massive cull and in the process siphoned off favourite photographs, and also I have been on a trip down memory lane. There is one group of photos I am compelled to post here because for me they form a glorious record of my long gone and much lamented garden, at our previous house. I have a tiny garden now, which I am enjoying, but in our last garden there was room for lots of joy.
Regrettably, where there were tulips and fritillaries in the long grass, there is now hardstanding for cars, and I heard yesterday that my beloved lavender hedge has now been taken out, which is the final nail in the coffin of a place bees once loved to visit. I am not sure that a static row of box balls is going to quite cut it with the pollinators. I used to count up to one hundred bees, of various types, along the spires of lavender when it was in bloom.
