A Potentilla moment

Do you even have one of those weeks when your human is super busy at work and the only 'nature' you see is the shrub in front garden which is in your line of sight as you stare forlornly out of the window waiting for her to come home?

PS Our Potentilla is having a bit of a moment this year, having miraculously survived a near-death experience at Gail's hands during our uncommonly dry summer in 2018.

Look, here it is in close up.

Thanks you to our dear friends Arty, Jakey and Rosy, for hosting the Nature Friday blog hop. Do go and visit the other posts - a great read is guaranteed.

  2. Very pretty bush, but you tell Gail ya need some more walks to explore da moors and all dat.

  3. We hope Gail's workload slows down, you NEED attention. That said, it is a pretty bush.

  4. Your Potentilla is just beautiful, Bertie!

  5. Bertie bless your little forlorn never ever NO never get to go anywhere. LOL
    Now to be fair I am quite sure for a traveler such as you even staying home for a few hours is torture. BUT Potentilla do make for a beautiful view. I will be looking this little jewel up on Google. It is new to me

    1. We suspect that Potentilla likes climates cooler than NC!

  11. Oh Bertie - you look so sad ! I wish I lived near to you, then we could come and take you for an extra walk, when Gail has to go to work.
    That is a very pretty bush - I hope it cheers you up just a little bit.

  12. Bertie, what a beautiful bush to see at all times. We know your human will be not busy for you soon, so you can get out and about. Thanks for the share. Have a wonderful day.

  13. That is one beautiful plant to look out on, but I am sure you would rather be outside sniffing it! My mom gets too busy sometimes too, hope you get some good walks in soon, because we like to tag along via all the great photos you show us!
