I had coffee in the garden this morning before work and thought I would take a few photos. It’s hard to drag myself away on days like this

Penstemon ‘Czar’ just starting to flower at the top of the slope

Heuchera ‘Palace Purple’ and a Lace cap Hydrangea mingling in the seat corner

Persicaria amplexicaulis ‘Golden Arrow’ in the side border

We have much needed rain forecast for later today but hopefully I will get out there for a while after work

Beautiful Annella especially when sun is shining in the morning, I've been greeted with a lovely red daylily opening every morning lately and as you say makes you not want to go to work, but a nice start to the day :))

If the side garden looks that nice, how nice is the front and back.

Really looking lovely Annella, I envy you, your lawn is so lush looking, the joys of two dogs and hardly any rain and mine is a mess but heyho will all get sorted come the Autumn, I much prefer a proper summer for a change.......

Stunning ! A credit to you Annie. Must be hard to go to work and leave the garden. The good thing about going to work, is, you look forward to seeing the garden when you arrive back home.

Absolutely lovely, all looks so well cared for, and your lawns are so green and lush. Love it.

As lovely as ever and how impressive that you got up in time for coffee in the garden before work, to say nothing of taking photos to share with us! It all looks so calming and tranquil.

Its beautiful Annie, lovely pictures did you get rain we had a little enough to stop me cutting the grass but managed to get lots of clearing up done in the veggie garden. Coffee is good out in the garden always tastes better, hope you managed to get out into the garden after work. :O)
