A bit of Summer Colour to brighten up a gloomy winter


By alextb


We all need cheering up, with the snow and the season where we can’t exactly do much with the garden.

So, here are some pictures from my garden in the Summer.

Spring and Summer 2011, will see so much more colour, becasue I have gone all out for the first year after finding out how fun gardening actually is in February 2010.

Lets leave this behind:

Now after the depressing pictures, it is time to cast your eyes over a few pictures to brighten your mood:


Yellow Chrysanthemum

Yellow Bush Rose

Red Patio Rose

Blue Gentian

Pink Heather

Michaelmas (Aster Pink)

Michaelmas (Aster Blue)

Patio Carnation

Yellow Cypress



Yellow Patio Rose


Pensham Czar

Just hang on a bit longer, and Spring will be here before you know it.

Thanks and I love the meerkats as well, so had to buy that planter as soon as I saw it.

In Spring and Summer I should hopefully have blogs full of spring & Summer plants.
