Following on from the last time that I displayed my rear, may I present the current state of affairs here at the DeVice Mansion: Yes, it's a garden update in preparation for The Very Mistress's 9th Annual Garden Photos Event! Above are my pineapple lilies, Eucomis comosa "Sparkling Burgandy", lounging about on the paysho. I bought one in 2014, which has produced a new bulb every year since then (those of you who can do maths will know that I now have five!). To the right are the seven foot sunflowers, and below, the rest of the rear garden. Oh, and so as not to shock you, the purple ring - you'll be pleased to hear - is not mine. All will be revealed with a stroke or two of your scrolling finger(s)!
Here are some very similar photos to a plethora of others found here on my blog. I am nothing if not consistant. Except for when I'm not. Anyway, these are from this morning's drift down to the beach (where I managed to have a swim without being disturbed by people or seals). First up, some groynes in silhouette (almost):
This is the End-of-the-Line as of yesterday. As you can see by comparing it to last month's update, the hungry sea has eaten away enough of the collapsed cliff to enable one to walk behind the revetment to get to The Other Side!!! I was going to post some "before" pictures here, but I can't be bothered, so you'll just have to click back and forth between this post and the previous update (if you could be bothered to click the link, that is) to make your comparisons.
It has been over a week since my last post, and over three weeks since I brought back some photos from the beach, so it's about time I remedied that. And what better remedy than a besundialed groyne?! With today being one of those rare Thursdays where plans haven't been made for me, I found myself down on the beach (after I'd hung the washing out, of course) hoping for a swim.
Due to a combination of a cool wind, only very intermittant sunshine, and people, the swim didn't materialise, but I did find something else to do...
