Well whitish anyway. Two of our self seeded echiums have bloomed white with a hint of blue, Mr Dulux would probably say “Ocean Spray” or “Misty Morning”. I think we will stick with whitish.
We had an unscheduled visitor to the garden today. He announced his arrival with a hale and hearty “hello!” and I was immediately impressed by the cut of his gib, as us seafarers say (well I’m not actually a seafarer more of a seaviewer but you get my point). He was a walker, tackling part of our wonderous south west footpath, and he had visited the garden last year. Many walkers pass by the garden and in my humble opinion this was a walker of the best breed. No clicking sticks, no religiously ticking off miles without even raising their heads to appreciate the many gems of the coast path; enjoying the journey, not anticipating the destination. He was so nice I made him a cup of tea; if I had a packet of hobnobs I may even have shared. Perhaps; we mustn’t get carried away.
