Westcott Village Flowers

It is always a pleasure visiting Westcott, and my younger daughter; this visit was to help in putting up plasterboard in the bathroom ceiling – a task she would have helped her husband with had she not been so close to delivering my next grandchild.

Parking the car, I spotted an unusual blue flower which a neighbour assures me is a Clematis, so before I offered my help I asked for permission to delay the start, so I could take a few photos. There were others besides, and even some to which I was invited to see by her neighbour, even some tulips in her own garden, so out came my macro lens and these now form another gallery.

In the confines of the small, but newly extended bathroom, getting the boards in place was soon underway, and after some garden re-organising the day was rounded off with a barbecue.


  1. I really enjoy your article. Westcott Village Flowers presented a really nice article on flowers.

  2. Thank you Dean,
    Flowers are handy when it comes to sending cards for life's impromptu occasions, and I know they'll mean a lot more to the recipient than a shop bought equivalent. I enjoy the challenge of trying to use a really recent image and the often dreadful puns I dream up as the message. You will see that flowers occur frequently in the galleries, but please do not ask me to give you their Latin name!
    It is good to hear a comment from someone who has arrived at the blog – I am always interested to know you found me.
    Happy easter, Rod
