The garden is looking lovely just now. It's at its best. I love to see it in the morning when the poppies have just opened and the bees are collecting pollen. I tried to catch a bee doing just that, but I wasn't quick enough this morning.
The rose bush, following, is very old and I can't remember the name of it, but every year it gives of its best and this year is no exception. It's a good year for roses over here in England. I'm reliably informed it's because of the warm days and cool nights. That is about to change. We are expecting a heatwave, starting tomorrow or Wednesday so I was glad that it rained yesterday and gave the trees and shrubs a soaking.
The next plant is called feverfew and it is said that the leaves are good for easing migraine. I don't think I would go to the trouble of crushing them myself and eating them. I would prefer to take it in tablet form. I do suffer with migraine although this year has been a bit better for me. No-one seems to know what causes it and it is such a scourge. Migraine is debilitating. It stops you doing things that other people would do easily. For example, I think twice before I plan a day out in bright sunlight because that seems to set one off in my case. Instead of just donning a sunhat and sun-glasses, I think twice. Have I had a migraine recently? If not then one may be due and that will spoil the day. I worry about driving because if a migraine starts, I just have to stop the car and wait until it goes away because during the aura stage, I can't see anything. It's like looking down a kaleidoscope!
Enough of that. Let's enjoy the flowers:
