Lovely evening .


By donnah


I have been taken photos of the garden to show you all

This is my rose in full flower growing over the pergular

Not sure what this is called I bought it a couple of years back as I thought it was different

These I had grown last year but they did not flower This year they are making up for it

Some one told me this was a weed But I like it so I have kept it in the garden

Bought myself a mushroom kit today. Bit like some maridges. Keep it in the dark and feed it Poo.( Sorry thats an old joke)

I think Berhine put a photo of one of these on goy the other day Am I correct in saying its Angelica?

Wow, what a lot to look at! Lovely photos and a lovely garden. Some say the yellow Lysimachia is a weed and it certainly grows like one but I like it too. It is so cheerful and grows anywhere, so definitely has a place in my garden. The dark leaf bush with the pink flower is Sambucus Nigra 'Black Lace' and I only know that because I am about to buy one!

This time I am stuck for words. Really, I just can't think of anything that would do your garden justice.

I've always wanted to know, how do you cope with all the different plants, with their feeding habits, how much water to give them, what type of soil they should have etc. I would nead a list as long as your garden just to keep up !!!

I'm really pleased I don't live next door to you, you might ask me to look after it while you were on holiday or something.

H & K's as always..........Ian

PS. I'm never stuck for words for very long am I?

Just catching up with the blogs - nearly missed this one and that would have been a shame. How lovely - just love your garden and your plants. Have the same coleus - roses are just lovely. I love that yellow weed - the lysimachia - it's stunning. Those daisies - are they livingstone daisies? - they're magnificent.

Hello Donnah, I'm a newbie and working my way through the blogs. What a lovely garden you have and such clear pictures too. I'm very inspired by this site and was hoping to get to the garden centre today but its raining. Hubby isn't impressed with the thought of a wander through a garden centre in the rain. Here's hoping it stops long enough for him to get me there! Maybe if I treat him to some lunch...........
