Changing Seasons – May 2019


I almost ran out of time for this month’s gallery. I took some photos mid month whilst waiting for my car to be fixed – the alternator broke en route to a garden, fortunately we hadn’t got very far and our local garage kindly fitted me in the same day. When you are as reliant on your car as we are that was a huge relief. But I did manage to get back this morning after my visit to the Physiotherapy department at the hospital in Hayle to see what else is flowering in May.

So much to choose from this month, I hope you enjoy the selection. (The header image this month is of a shadier part of the garden, where fuchsias and hydrangeas grow, a lovely area to linger in when it is hot.)

    Ugh – car problems! I hope they are behind you. I would be lost without a car so a breakdown is something I dread.

    You always manage to find so much glorious colour regardless of the month 🙂
