Joy of joys, a Bank Holiday, sunshine and a clear blue sky! Suddenly everything in the garden has sprung into action. Clematis reaching up into the blue.
Iris are everywhere, but all the same colour. What happened to all the other colours that I used to grow?
We are cutting paths through the grass as we did last year and I'm trying to establish wild flowers in the uncut areas.
I ordered a selection of plant supports online and they came at the weekend so I've been staking the delphiniums and hollyhocks. Can you spot them? Semicircular hoops in different heights and width
The flower borders are full of promise - and ground elder!
It has been a sociable weekend with friends and neighbours popping into the garden for tea and a chat. Cake and fizz with friends who were celebrating their wedding anniversary. It is wonderful to have weather like this so that we can meet up.
