(((Louise))) your Mending the Sky is such a beauty, love the swifts, such joyful flyers & Wow! that dry stone wall, the paving and the pond are fabulous and those wild orchids are magic!
Yes living in the Cotswolds means lots of beautiful dry stone walls. They harbour slugs and giant snails that eat your precious seedlings but they are lovely walls. Alan is very pleased with this new area and we are putting in new plants which is exciting. The wild flower walk was marvellous to learn lots of new names.
How lucky you are to have swifts nesting in your cottage roof! Lovely flower photos. Incidentally, I believe there are bee orchids in the Lowe Mill Estate in the Cotswold Waterparks. I just hope I get time to visit before they’re over.
Thanks I think they have bee orchids at Westonbirt too a little later, hoping they are in flower for the July walk- they are every month. Will also check out the water parks, thanks.
