Visitors and residents
Everything holds interest from the right perspective, like this delightful ladybird. And not a harlequin in sight.
And when visitors arrive, they bring flowers. The most gorgeous peonies I have ever seen, good enough to eat. Well, almost! So, while Van Gogh would have waited until they were dying, to paint his masterpiece (I considered this, but really, the peonies were at their best in full bloom), I picked up four mini canvases, and tried to capture the overflowing vase before it was lost forever.
Four impressions, one vase, and perhaps each canvas will wing its way to different parts of the country. But perhaps they will need this pic, for the full effect.
And if I cannot capture the scene on canvas yet, there are many photographs to reproduce the momemt, and remember the wading of avocets.
I wonder what visitors will drop in to my garden next... or perhaps the regular residents: crows, magpies, wood pigeons, collared doves and jays.
