GBFD

Christina is reeling from a family loss, so will not be hosting Garden Bloggers’ Foliage Day today. I hope my foggy photos (they seem ethereal to me) will ease her heartache ever so slightly. The above is the view entering our lane, with the Italian Cypresses lining the drive.

I love the way the ghostly line of tall cedars retreats into the background.

Up close, the Ceanothus ‘Blue Jeans’ forms a scrim through which to view the scene.

At which point, if you turned around to look back the way we came, this is what you would see. Be well, Christina, and we will do our best to carry on this tradition of celebrating our gardens’ foliage on the 22nd of each month while longing for your return.

  1. Thank you for your thoughtful words and keeping GBFD going in December. My MIL’s funeral was on the 23rd. Your beautiful ethereal images were apt in so many ways not least in that for the first 10!days of our time in the U.K., we didn’t see the sky once, but today, Christmas morning, there was blue sky with scudding white cotton wool clouds.

  2. Haunting, pensive images, Ricki. Sorry to hear about Christina – I will be sending her healing thoughts today. Your driveway is looking very stately, and I bet that Blue Jeans scrim is a fantastic sight in spring. Merry Christmas to you and R.
