Suddenly everything is looking fresh and green, the perennial borders are springing into growth, sadly not just the flowers but also that pesky, pernicious weed, ground elder.
I've resorted to a bit of hand weeding, which I'm sure is ineffectual but at least will stop the dratted stuff from setting seed.
There is still quite a bit of yellow in the garden but it is fading fast and other colours the I much prefer are starting to emerge.
The forget-me-nots that seed freely all over the place have been wonderful but are now past their best. I need to pull them out and put them on the compost heap.
I'm always sad to see them go, but they will make space for my cosmos seedlings that are straining to be out of their pots.

and a row of iris in the veg garden.
Last years planting of chard has grown ridiculously large. I'll leave one to seed to plant for the winter. The spuds are growing well and have been earthed up - now that's a sight to gladden the heart of a Murphy!
Awesome!!! I love seeing your garden photos. Everything looks so beautiful. I'm still in a world of brown and yellow for now! :)ReplyDelete
Dear Rain, your neck of the woods looks beautiful whatever the colour/weather!Delete
Looks promising! Cold here today, I'm skulking indoors.Delete
Those round pebbles in photo 8 - you pinched them from Kilve beach, didn't you?ReplyDelete
Ssh! They were taken from Cot Valley, years before it became illegal to do so, Mi Lud.Delete
Gorgeous! I love the honeysuckle. You keep your beds edged very nicely! -JennReplyDelete
Its lovely when colour and perfume - and bees reappear. (Up close the garden is really rather ramshackle.)Delete
What a beautiful garden with so many pretty flowers! Love all your perennials!ReplyDelete
Yes, I really appreciate perennials. Many are old favourites associated with the gardens of deceased friends and family and I look forward to the reappearance of their flowers year after year.Delete
You have absolutely amazing garden :)ReplyDelete
It's rather ramshackle seen in the flesh, but a wonderful, living, breathing space that gives us great pleasure.Delete
When you were talking about the garden in the hot summer and then the cold winter i thought oh no ,,, But now just look at these wonderful photos of your beautiful garden.Mine is all dirt rocks and cactus. No lush gardens here.ReplyDelete
I live in a temperate country, Parsnip, so that when I moan on about cold, wet etc. you'll have to indulge me because it is really nearly always only moderate conditions compared to many places. Each place has it's own beauty.Delete
lovely fresh and green.....ReplyDelete
thank you for sharing your beautiful photos
Yes indeed, Tanza, we are enjoying the freshest, greenest time of year with everything to look forward to!Delete
Beautiful garden. Would love to walk thru it every day.ReplyDelete
That's just what I have to do as soon as I get up in the morning, have a walk round the garden. A green space is essential to my sense of well-being. Would love you to join me, Kay!Delete
I had forgotten what heaven your garden provides. Wow.ReplyDelete
At this time of year, yes, there is a touch of heaven about being outside in all the promise of green growth.Delete
Your garden is beautiful!ReplyDelete
All right, green.
With certainties the weeds give a little work.
But it is part of the life of a garden.
Dear Janice, I'm enjoying a lovely Bank Holiday weekend, as I hope are you. I'm weeding!ReplyDelete
