The Gardener’s Greeting

We should always be thankful for the good people we have in our lives.
Music Score – New Day

Common Horse Chestnut
Aesculus hippocastanum
Mature horse chestnut trees grow to a height of around 40m and can live for up to 300 years. The bark is smooth and pinky-grey when young, which darkens and develops scaly plates with age. Twigs are hairless and stout; buds are oval, dark red, shiny and sticky.
He is richest who is content with the least, for content is the wealth of nature.

Wild Fennel
Wild fennel is a very common plant in the UK and in some cases is even considered a pest as it can grow profusely and indeed invasively.
Forget not that the earth delights to feel your bare feet and the winds long to play with your hair.
Khalil Gibran

Common Gorse
Ulex europaeus
With bright, beaming yellow flowers with the scent of coconut, common gorse is a sight to behold.
Nature is so powerful, so strong. Capturing its essence is not easy – your work becomes a dance with light and the weather. It takes you to a place within yourself.
Annie Leibovitz

Field Thistle
Creeping thistle is a perennial, British native that is visited by a wide range of insects.
How strange that nature does not knock, and yet does not intrude!
Emily Dickinson

Wishing you a great day folks in all that you do!
