This year I have spent most of the Summer observing the subtle changes of the garden. I've had the pleasure of this every day. A bank we planted a couple of years ago comes into full bloom. The Senecio Cineraria Silver Dust plant with its velvety dusty icing-sugared leaves proliferates and outreaches to the sun in great swathes like waves. It begins to resemble corals under the sea. I imagine great oceans and reefs and I'm transported there.
