They bring about a feeling of calm.
I find them restfull, they help me forget the stresses of everyday life.
I love the way they glow in moonlight.
They are just pure heaven for me.
This is one of my favourites at the moment. The water hawthorn, little boats floating on the pond, surrounded by duckweed and bubbles. You can grow this beauty in a water-filled tub. She will flower until the first frosts. On warm days she fills the air with the most beautiful fragrance. Insects are drawn to her in large numbers and some drown trying to reach her (poor things).
This little beauty lifts my spirits each time I walk past......happy April days.
