A Year in Pictures – 22, 23 and 24 May 2015 – Plants Owe Us Nothing

On Friday 22 May I managed a (not terribly good) photograph of one the Common Councilmen of The Ward of Tower placing a wreath on the memorial of Samuel Pepys in St Olave Hart Street, the church where the illustrious diarist is buried. The occasion was the annual Pepys Commemoration Service, a tradition established in the 1920s. The wall is nearly 600 years old.

On Saturday 23 May I pointed my camera at the ceanothus that does rather well at the bottom of our garden. There are about 50 varieties of this shrub, which originates from North America and is sometimes known as California lilac. I love the pale blue of this one and its variegated leaves.

On Sunday 24 May I arranged some small plum tomatoes on the breakfast bar in our kitchen. Their rich red is reflected in the dark, glossy iridescence of the bowl in which they have been placed.

The Solemn, The Decorative and The Edible. We make use of plants but they owe us nothing.
