What a joy for gardeners, some sunshine in the day and a bit of rain at night. I'm busy in the garden trying to catch up with the effects of such good growing conditions. (Don't wish to brag but I think that I am probably growing the best weeds in the entire neighbourhood.)
In the early morning I look out of the bedroom window to see what sort of day lies ahead.
A misty start to a promising day.
The far section of the herbaceous border that I cleared last autumn is starting to to fill.
'Coral Reef' poppy, a lovely, delicate colour.
The alliums have been good but now they are going over.
The self-seeders, foxglove, campanula and aquilegia always do well.
We dug this round bed last year. It was a mist of forget-me-nots in the spring but now that I've pulled them up it's looking rather bare.
I call it the 'municipal bed'.
I love it when the roses start to bloom.
And things are finally looking up in the veg garden
where I've put up a few barricades to try to stop the pigeons from eating all the crops.
A few roses to enjoy in the house.
