Blue skies

'Blue skies shining on me' tra la la 
- and about time too!


We have had so much rain
and now the sun is making everything grow like mad.

The honeysuckle over the porch hums with bees.
Himself is taking advantage of the dry weather
to make some repairs.






The borders are out of control.

But who cares when the sun is shining!

Roses and iris are among my favourite flowers.





I love days like these.

  2. Beautiful skies, beautiful garden. We had the hottest month of May ever in Holland. Last week some showers, but it's rather dry. As far as I can see you have the same plants and style of gardening as I have.
    regards, Janneke

    1. We have had weird weather, very unreliable, but I'm hoping that the summer ahead will be good. My garden is getting a bit beyond my control but remains a pleasure, especially so in the month of June. Ground elder and bindweed threaten everything - but they are not going to win!

    1. It is, indeed, Donna. And after such a long winter, much deserved!

    1. Cold again today and a bit of rain in the air. It does mean that when the sun does shine we really appreciate it! So glad that your world is also blooming, Rain.

  5. Everything is so lush and green.
    Today is only 103 today, we have a green desert but lush it is not.

    cheers, parsnip

    1. 103 - phew!! You say, 'only'! I think that 'lush' comes only with a lot of rain!

  6. So do I. It looks like we will have half a sunny day today. Beggars can’t be choosers.

    Your gardens are beautiful and isn’t it always a thrill to see one of those balloons. Up, up and away...take me away to sunny skies.

  7. The balloons float over in the early morning or evening only on soft, still days. Sometimes the occupants wave and say hello as they pass over the garden. We've had a few land nearby!
    Enjoy your half day of sunshine - it can't be said that we don't appreciate the sun whenever it deigns to shine!

  8. Price to pay for blue skies, but are we willing? I'd say a somewhat YES!

  9. P.S. Forget me nots beginning to bloom, but lots more promising... and corn salad in competition now too! So forget me nots to go to compost & chickens. Wish me luck?

    1. Be sure to give those forget-me-nots a good shake over the earth before you compost them so that you have plenty of flowers to enjoy next year! Mine seed freely all over the place and they give me great pleasure. They are such obliging plants, and so easy to pull up once the flowers are over.
      Dear Wildside, I wish you luck, good growing weather, enough sunshine, happiness, healthy chickens......
