Summer Blues – and other colours!

20 Jul

I have  just returned  from a family holiday to Scotland where, after the first few days of rain (fortunately I had issued strict orders for all family members to pack their regntøj), the sun came out and was in fact extremely pleasant.

Since our return to Denmark on Tuesday, however, the weather has been somewhat ‘soupy’. Now, some people might complain about the rain showers/downpours and breezy intervals which have pervaded, but I find it rather appropriate as I am currently suffering from the summer sniffles/attack of the green gunk and, quite frankly, being ill when it’s brilliant sunshine outside is rubbish.

One of the good things about lying on the couch all day is that I get a really good view of the garden. At the moment everything is in full bloom and in between rain showers I nipped out with my camera so you could have a look, too.

Some parts of the garden are still a little bit  shall we say ‘nature reserve’-ish but this doesn’t appear to be a bad thing, judging by the quantity and variety of insects paying a visit.

I’m looking forward to being out and about again (and writing in Danish!), but in the meantime I’ll just enjoy looking at the flowers.
