petal, scone, white
The parrot tulips are finished. But the fallen petals make even better subjects for photographs.(Click for whole picture).
Outside a cafe a man with a ruddy complexion and a white beard sits in front of a cup of tea. He is visibly enjoying a scone, his jaws moving rhythmically as he watches passers-by.
A white wisteria climbs the red brick wall of a house near The Grove. Because I always think of wisteria as blue, this variety has a special appeal. It is a surprise. Though it looks well established, I don't remember seeing it before The tresses hang from the branches with a special elegance. I think of the white garden at Sissinghurst Castle where flowers and leaves are all white and silver against a background of green.
