Very British!

Wee One was home for the Jubilee weekend and we went for lunch to our friends whose garden abuts the Bristol Channel. It is always a lovely place to sit and watch passing boats or a dramatic sky. We sat beneath this lovely Blairi climbing rose, but not for long. After we had eaten the main course both sea and sky disappeared into one grey mist and the rain set in. We had to clear the table and decamp inside!
In the evening it was our village 'do'. We are a small hamlet and can just about all fit into one house. Homemade decorative bunting had been strung up all about the garden of our host and hostess but it was raining and everyone made a dive for cover. 
The greenhouse came in very handy. We shared it with a healthy-looking peach tree
and abutilon.

Red, white and blue

There is a long holiday weekend ahead to celebrate the Queen's Diamond Jubilee.
Everyone is decorating with red, white and blue.
Our bunting is up, we are ready!
