Harp in the Garden!

Last Saturday (31st May) I had a session in the garden and reclaimed a border from the weeds!

I obviously did too much as I fainted in church the following day!

I saw the doctor on Monday and he thought the mild headaches, tinnitus and ultimately the fainting was probably due to Labyrinthitis.

So the border had to wait until today for a visit to the plant shop and some gentle planting.

I got some Geraniums, Pelargoniums and some Begonias. I tend to only to get plants the slugs and snails don't like so it is usually just Begonias but I thought I'd be fairly safe with the Geraniums and Pelargoniums too.

Oooo is that a harp I see in the garden?

Well it was such a nice day, I thought I'd bring my newest harp out for a photo shoot!

Got quite a show of Alliums this year too.

I planted them in memory of my Dad a few years back as I'd seen them in the garden of remembrance one year.
So then my little stool came out as well and I settled next to the patch of daisies to play my beautiful instrument.

What a soothing afternoon.

Lovely garden and what a beautiful harp.

Hope your Labyrinthitis clears up quickly.

Enjoy your weekend. Sue
