Day 103 in our garden

Well this is the last in the Day in our garden series. It was started at the time of lockdown and was about what I was seeing in our garden during that period. The photos and words in this posting take us up to 4 July 2020. On 5 July 2020 I had a trip out on to Baildon Moor with my camera, and I have already created a blog post for it here, so now it is time to end the Days in our garden series.

New things are still showing themselves in the garden. We have a pink Hydrangea flower on a bush where all other flowers are blue. Strange! The Courgettes in the vegetable plot are sprouting tiny Cougettes and flowers. And in the back garden yet another variety of Clematis is in flower. This one is Purpurea Plena Elegans. It looks like the top soil that was used in the landscaping of the front garden had a few seeds in it from somewhere. I don’t remember seeing these little Wild Violas (see header image and above) in our garden before. They are tiny and need a Macro lens to do them justice. The Buddleia is also coming into bloom. Let’s hope we get plenty of butterflies on it.

I will continue to show things from our garden but they will not be part of this series. Though I have no idea what I will use as a heading/title.

  1. […] Day 103 in our Garden was the last blog post in the Day in Our Garden series. I had tried to create a blog post each day for the series but around the time of that blog post was when I had ventured outside the garden for the first time for a few weeks. If you have been following my blog you will have seen that I have now been out and about a few times – Baildon Moor, Denso Marston Nature Reserve, Ben Rhydding Gravel Pits, Dalton Bank Nature Reserve, Shipley Glen, Potter Pits, Yeadon Tarn, Fish Pass at Robert’s Park. However not much has changed since Day 1 which is why I have continued with the format of the title. All trips out have been ones were I felt comfortable that I would be able to maintain my idea of sensible social distancing. From those experiences though I will not be visiting Yeadon Tarn or walking along the river bank near Charlestown for quite a while. At Yeadon, for some reason, people were happy to walk along side by side taking up the full width of the path even when passing others. And along the river in Charletown the slopes or plants and bushes along the narrow paths meant that passing people safely was difficult and needed quite a bit of back tracking. Ben Rhydding Gravel Pits has paths but quite frequent side paths so it is quite easy to maintain safe distances. Also there are signs suggesting that people walk around the reserve in a clockwise direction which reduces the chance of having to pass people. […]
