The bright border is at its midsummer zenith!
Plants, like people, have an inner light. When the sun shines on them, they glow.
In May, the Kentish country lanes are full of froth and fizz. They are overflowing with hawthorn blossom and the cow parsley. It reminds me of filling a champagne flute and seeing if it overflows.
The tulips have delighted me for three, nearly four weeks. This is their final fling!
