My Indian Bean Tree

 I don't usually include pictures of my garden in my blog but today is the exception, my Indian Bean tree has flowered for the first time :-)  I bought and planted this tree about eight or nine years ago, I knew it would not flower for a number of years, it had to reach a certain height, ten feet I think before it will flower.   This tree has to be my favourite tree, it has large lime green leaves which looks lovely on a sunny day.   This is the Golden Indian Bean tree, I think there is another whose leaves are much darker.

The Changing Colours of the Meadows

We went to Durlston Country Park yesterday.  The meadows are filled with Knapweed and Field Scabious at this time.  Always interesting to visit these meadows to see what is in flower and the changing colours.

A Royal Visit This Morning :-)

I opened my curtains this morning and look what I had in my garden, a Royal Visit from Mr & Mrs Pheasant.  This pair are often in my garden, the male constantly makes cute little noise at the female as HE follows her wherever she goes.   I like the way they walk around, very cautiously,  as if they are royalty :-)
