A GLORIOUS AUGUST DAY IN THE GARDEN

18 comments


July is going out in a blaze of sunshine,so out came the camera to capture some pictures while the sun shines.

The sunshine lit up the Golden Conifer and the Lysimachia bordering the steps onto the main garden.


The Daisy’s are looking especially bright contrasting with the Acer.

The border to the right is brimming over with plants and shrubs, including Hebes, Acer, Clematis, Sedums, Daisies,Sidalcia,Thalictrum,Phlox,Campanula

Would you believe that there is a Little Pond in here somwhere lol

View across the garden


The Chimney pot with Lavertera,Ladies Mantle and Acer make a pleasing combination

View across the garden to the right hand corner with Crocosmia, and Clematis.

Rose “Dearest” blends in well with the Crocosmia and Clematis

Close up of Hydranger,it was new last year so I am really pleased to see it flowering and really like the colour

Makes a good companion with the Euonymus too

Regal Lilies are putting on a good show, they were planted last year.

One of my mingles around the Pond Area [its a case of anything goes and Grows lol]

A veiw across the garden from the Patio Steps

Closeup of Campanular

A Little Visitor wants to get in on the scene ;0)

Lysmachia, who needs sunshine with this plant around ;0)

Well folks I hope you enjoyed your little visit!
Happy Gardening Everyone ;0))

Thank you for taking me around your garden Carol. Everything looks beautiful and so lush. I also can't help noticing how tidy and neat everything is. You must spend a lot of time out there to keep it looking so good. :))

You can never spend too much time in the garden I say. ;)

I too favour the free for all overgrown look but yours looks a lot more orderly than our garden! You have such lovely plant combinations and everything looks so colourful and pretty. The daisies have done so well this year and always manage to look so cheery!

Carole, how lovely your garden is looking in the sunshine. The Squirrel looks cute and I love the way the pond is surrounded now!

What are these hubby's like, they should know better, not that mine is saying it at the moment obviously because he daren't, his words in the past week are "Be careful or should you have done that" .
Your garden is looking so bright and cheerful Pansy, and so healthy, its a treat to see it, ours is looking very thirsty again and actually some plants already have their autumn look, we seem to be weeks in front of you, I am going to raid the local nursery again and see if I can get some fillers for my gaps, I do not like empty spaces and now I am able to get out and potter around more they are aggravating me, lol, thats a lovely shot of your little visitor...

Lovely PP, a garden like yours doesnt just happen, lots of planning and hard work involved, looks beautiful.

It all looks beautiful Carole, I do envy you not being overlooked. When I take garden pics I have to be careful not to get neighbours houses in view, those whose gardens back on to mine or adjoining :-)

Oh what a treat to wander around your lovely borders. Everything looks so well behaved & healthy. I love the bright splash the Lysimachia makes & the contrasting leaf shapes work so well.
Surely you couldn't fit another thing in!
