An unusual group in a vase all picked in and around the pond.

Two men were walking to Emmaus and they didn’t know that the third person that had joined them was the newly risen Jesus until they kindly invited him to eat with them. It was then they noticed that it was Jesus but He then vanished out of their sight. May the risen Jesus be part of your day.

Luke 24
( Sometimes strangers can be angels and when we do something to help someone in need it is just like doing it for Jesus. Just a thought, not original, but said by me again. Sandy)
Marsh marigold, Mexican orange, Deutzia and grape hyacinths.

Find a group of people who challenge and inspire you, spend a lot of time with them, and it will change your life.

Marsh Marigold growing in the pond with its buttercup like flowers and large rounded, scalloped leaves. There are several names for this plant: Kingcup, meadow bright, May blob, water dragon, caltha-palustris. It is a common native species.
Mexican orange. A medium sized bushy ever green shrub near to the pond. It is best to reduce or rebalance after blooming at the end of June. It has dark, glossy leaves divided into three broad leaflets. The flowers are white and growing in clusters.
Deutzia hybrid Lemoine. This is a bushy deciduous shrub, with simple opposite leaves and star-shaped or cupped pink flowers. It grows to 1.5 m and spreads by that amount too.
Marsh marigold was considered a good omen on the Isle of Man and the flowers known as “May flowers ” were strewn on doorsteps. Today Marsh Marigold is still brought into the house in spring by the islanders.

The seal and guerdon of wealth untold

We clasp in the wild marsh marigold
