Blue Jug, the seaside and a plate.

I keep forgetting to post pictures of my  Blue Jug.  Those of you who have read my blog in the past will know that I am attempting to keep this blue jug, inherited from my late mother in-law, filled with flowers/foliage from the garden throughout this year.

When I got back from my trip to Belgium I found that the bluebells were out.  We have loads in the garden and in fact I have in the past thrown bucket loads away.  Now they are more manageable, but no doubt will increase again.    So, since then the jug has been filled with bluebells.  I picked the last lot yesterday - they are nearly finished but I managed to find some in the very shadiest part of the garden.   Notice there are white ones as well - and I even spotted a pink one in the front garden, but left that to see if it will increase.   So the jug has looked pretty much the same for the last few weeks.  The scent in the dining room when I replace the flowers is incredible - wish I could share it with you.

We are going away tomorrow for a few days, and when I come back I will have to look for something else flowering in the garden.

We popped down to Bognor Regis on Saturday - the beach was practically deserted.  Just the odd dog walker.   The tide was way out, and it was nearly mid-day when I took this photo.  We took a picnic and sat on the promenade to eat our lunch.  It was beautifully warm.

As a collector of pelargoniums, I also collect items depicting pelargoniums.  I spotted this plate on eBay a couple of weeks ago and was so lucky to win it.  Isn't it stunning?

More when  I get back from our few days away.
