New look

The blog has had a makeover – sort of. I’m not finished tweaking it yet, and there are bound to be some disasters along the way. However, I am hoping that some things will be a bit easier on the eye.

For example, the new theme and update should be able to cope with some wrapping round of text on pictures. How happy that makes me. But – I’m not quite sure what will happen when we get to the end of the photo. We shall have to wait and see the final edit. The honeysuckle is even more gorgeous than usual this year, and I’ve taken a new photo from a slightly different angle, to go with the new look.

The honeysuckle grows along the fence and over an arch at the gate. The smell when you walk underneath is redolent of the smell of summers long past. Makes me think that it would be a good idea to look for some oil of honeysuckle to use in the oil-burner come dark, damp winter.

A happy and blessed Sunday to you and yours.

    I own that honeysuckle too, or rather it owns me. It snakes along on top of a trellis which is already groaning under the weight of a climbing rose. ‘Belgica’ does have a wonderful smell. I cut mine back after flowering, otherwise it will smother everything in its path.

    Happy gardening!

    Yes, Friko, it responds well to vigorous pruning. And this year, following the hard, alpine-style winter, it is at its best.

    I have only wild honeysuckle here…long since past blooming. Our are pink and yellow or yellow and white but not the lovely hues of yours.

    Hey Freda the site looks great. Well done.

    I think you’ll enjoy the opportunities this space can give you, in terms of creative options.

    Now that banner image, is that the view from your place?

    The banner image is from the Glebe field where we walk Misty, though you can still see the mountains from the house. We are very blessed in having such beautiful surroundings.
