Tempus Fugit

Tempus Fugit

So, today is the last day of June but what a bumper month it was for the garden!

Did a bit of planting and weeding today.

The big thing though was re-finding a sundial I had placed on the hill some years ago. It had become completely covered over with persicaria. I cut the persicaria away but need to cut a bit more away.

The sundial says 'tempus fugit', which is 'time flies' in Latin. And it seems to have done since I placed the sundial up there. It seems that my perception of the centre point, as seen from the kitchen, has not changed in the last while because I placed the Easter Island heads in roughly the same position as the sundial although the sundial was no longer visible at that stage.

More garden photos in the June album.

Hoping to get to the Dillon garden in Dublin tomorrow. However, this is my third year trying to get there so I'll believe it only when I'm actually there : )

Hope you enjoyed the Dillon Garden. It is always changing, I just don't know how she does it.
