Bank Holiday




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.

  4. I've never known delphiniums grow as high as ours have this year - the leaves must be over four feet and the flower spikes are only just beginning to poke out. I'd better get skating and get staking (that started with a typo).

    4. My Foundation tutor was one of her "assistants" when he was a student in London. He said that all her work was painted by assistants after her first flush of success. She was not particularly liked by those who worked for her! (Sorry to butt in here Tasker and Cher).

    5. Hi, Rachel. I think her work is pretty chilly, soulless stuff so I'm not at all surprised that her character was something similar.

  6. I really want to thank Dr Emu for saving my marriage. My wife really treated me badly and left home for almost 3 month this got me sick and confused. Then I told my friend about how my wife has changed towards me. Then she told me to contact Dr Emu that he will help me bring back my wife and change her back to a good woman. I never believed in all this but I gave it a try. Dr Emu casted a spell of return of love on her, and my wife came back home for forgiveness and today we are happy again.
