Tansy (named after a weed herself) is quite fond of weeds. She and Tatty strolled about the neighbourhood to see what was growing on the verges these days  – they found thistles…

  1. It’s nice to see the girls getting out into the sunshine even if it is in the weeds. You know that weeds are just misplaced flowers. Denise

  2. So interesting to see what wild things grow in Tansy and Tatty’s world. We have some of the same altho sadly no beach peas! Thank you for another delightful ramble!

  3. These are beautiful photos…the colors are so rich and with the Hittys’pretty clothing colors to go along with the nature delights, well, you’ve made another lovely narrative of life with the Quimper Hittys.

    • Just last weekend I had to wash the willow tree with soapy water to try and reduce the aphids. It seemed to me that the entire population of aphids in Victoria had come to feast on the sap!
