Is there anything more delightful than standing at the window on a warm summer's morning with a mug of tea in your hand, looking out at the garden? At first you notice the things that you have not done: uneven lawn edges, a bush not clipped, the border that is waiting until autumn, but after a while you get distracted by the sunlight on the floating white Gaura flowers and the silvery whorls of Clematis. The dark amber Acer claims your attention and then you notice that the bumble bees are already busy on the pink Sidalcea. A glimpse of bright Nasturtium makes you smile and long to be outside. And so the day begins.
