The wild flag iris are in bloom around the lake edge
But to dispel any ideas that I have the garden under control, here is an image of one of my beautiful iris being threatened with choking from that miserable and all too healthy weed, convolvulus. It rampages about my garden along with that other great nuisance, ground elder.
And don't get me started on the state of my lawn. A green sward is supposed to be every English gardener's pride and joy.
Take a look at mine, green and lush only in curious little circular patches. I'll tell you the secret - dog pee.
My lawn is beyond all hope!
