Golden Hour, Shakespeare’s Birthday and Suffragette Garden

23 Apr

1    It’s lovely that the days are so much longer and that we now get the evening sunshine across the back garden. This was truly a golden hour.



2    Today is Shakespeare’s Birthday and also the date of his death. He was born in 1564 and died in 1616 so all those wonderful plays and poems were written by the time he reached 52!  The Globe Theatre in London have made this delicious looking cake in his honour.

3   My Suffragette garden, planted in purple, white and green to honour the Suffragettes, especially my Great Granny who was imprisoned in Holloway for her actions, is looking beautiful at the moment as the purple tulips are joining the white ones.

      I would have loved some of that cake! It looks as good as the one made by Ti to celebrate the raising of the stone in the stone circle. 🙂

    Beautiful tulips! My bulbs are just starting to poke through the ground. In a week or two we should have some nice colour, just like yours.

      Tulips are so bright aren’t they, really shout that Spring is here. I hope yours are in full bloom very soon. 🙂
