    Usually I don’t read posts without some indication of what the post it about, but for you I made an exception. The flower … meh … the man’s face (Your partner?) … exquisite.

    Hydrangeas – don’t eat the petals!

    I see you gave up tinting your hair too. The regrowth is a pain isn’t it?

      I have never tinted my hair! It’s been grey for ages, and now it’s really turned the corner to majority rule – but it still looks dark if there’s gel in it ☺

        Millions wouldn’t, but I believe you.

        The sides were already grey in my gravatar pic (which was taken in Spain in the year we left, mid 2014!) By 2018 (my 40th birthday) it was already more grey than not, and now at 41, well, you can see it 🙂

    You blend in nicely amongst those beautiful hydrangeas. I, unfortunately, in order to blend in as well, would need to stand next to a pile of very old, very used gym shoes with torn laces and splintered soles. 🙂

    That’s a great photo, of you and the hydrangeas. How tall is the shrub? It must be enormous, or are you sitting down?

      It is huge, but it’s also raised from the ground adding an extra 1 metre of height. In picture one I’m sitting on a stool on the steps, and in the other I’m standing 😊

    Your nose appears to be meandering across your face like a grazing dugong. Nice shirt, though.

      It’s the same nose as in all the other pictures 😛

      Hahahahahaha, that’s just the type of comment Mr Pink would leave. Nicely done sir, though I’m very keen on anonymole’s ‘disdainful stare’ for that is true though I feel there is some wistfulness there too, all perfectly captured. You look marvellous grey sir, I think they’re cracking portraits. I see a count disguised as the gardener at a hugely wealthy home out to take revenge upon the fools who dared scorn him, in which case we all best scarper quick, hahahaha.

      Lovely to see you dearie. x

    Have you put nails in the soil around the hydrangeas to make them blue work? It really works. By the way, the grey suits you😀

      Thanks! I don’t have the energy or dedication for regular cosmetics use, so I never even considered dyeing it.
      I used colorant on the hydrangeas a couple of years ago, but I found the result a bit harsh. How intense is the effect with nails?

    I think non-stainless steel nails which rust work the best. It’s the iron.

      I’ll try on a smaller plant first to test the effect. I very much regretted the colorant. The flowers were all uneven in colour.

    You clever man, you chose a shirt of exactly the right colour to blend in with the leaves. 😀

    My back is having spasms just thinking about all the hard work you must have done to make the flowers look that nice.

      Just wait til next year! As all the big work inside the house is done, much of my attention will be geared to cleaning up the forgotten parts of the garden.

    Quelle surprise de découvrir sur votre blog la “maison des Stanton”. J’ai vécu toute mon enfance dans cette rue où mon père avait son usine. Bravo pour la restauration. C’était une belle maison avec une très belle serre … dans mes souvenirs. Je passe moins souvent à Mazamet désormais, mais j’y serai pour deux jours fin août. Enjoy indian summer there.

      Nous adorons la maison, elle est grande mais pratique et les pièces sont toutes de bonne taille.
      Quelle était la propriété de votre famille ?
