What a beautiful weekend!
Glad to be out in my garden in the warm weather, pottering. The thunder storm last night has watered everything really well, the whole garden has been so dry. The water butt was empty already, unfortunately it didn’t refill as much as I’d hoped.
I topped out the Laurel and dead headed the huge rose bush that had been beaten by the downpour. The garden recycle bin is nearly full already (the sign of a good weekends work)!
The Campanula is out in abundance, tall and bushy, blue and white varieties. They really add to the cottage garden look I was going for. Please ignore the state of the fence, the wasps have stripped it.
I popped out to the local garden centre and found this soup bowl on sale. This Lewisia fitted perfectly for a little table decoration 🙂
Those are my peas shoots behind, just showing signs of germination.
The bearded irises are doing really well, this is my favourite one. A very blue purple with a matching beard.
This I didn’t plant. It came up in the vegie patch, an imposter that I will have to leave where it decided was best.
It’s just too beautiful, so it stays, and of course it will probably reseed in the same place next year…………………
I hope you’ve had a good weekend 🙂
