Mid-Week Macro

Not having a very good week so far, so just wanted to remind myself of the beauty that is out there by getting up close and personal in our own garden.

 Mimosa pudica leaf

Mimosa pudica flower



Berberis darwinii

Hamamaelis Diane

Sambucus nigra Black Lace

Eriobotrya japonica

Forsythia x intermedia

Buddleia Black Knight





Heuchera Palace Purple

Felinus cattus Cutebutdim


  1. I love mimosa trees, always have. Sorry your week is going badly, chin up , it will get better. the Felinus is cute as a button. Oh! You need to consider using that picture of you with the two tea mugs as your new header. It was in your last post. take care, go pet you cats.

  2. Gary,
    Hoping by the time of this commenting that your week has improved exponentially. And surly a little time in you beautiful garden with your whiskered sidekick to keep you company would improve any week. Take care. – gary

  3. That last plant is kind of furry.
    Hang in there. Hope things look better soon.

  4. Hi Gina,

    I love the trees as well, and am reminded to trim ours back a bit every time I try to open our bedroom window. The variety 'pudica' is a small ground dweller, that when touched, folds and collapses, a feature to protect it's delicate structure from heavy rainfall. It's worth a look on Youtube.

  5. Hi Gary,
    It's been a very tricky and complicated week, and has resulted in the need to work instead of going away on holiday at the bank holiday. One of the pains of self employment, but there are worse ways to spend a day I suppose. Hobie always brings a smile.

  6. Hi Sherlock,
    I find him hard to not pick up and squeeze sometimes.

    1. You certainly have a lot going on in your garden. To say nothing of cute cats.

  7. Thanks Linda, they are knid of huggable!
