Your garden is beautiful, you have a lot going on in your garden. Lucky you, you have had a dry day, it has rained all day here, I am getting desperate to be in the garden but I don't think it is going to happen this week :((((

It's ideal for playing ball games when the family are here Pim. It's the last borders to be sorted and filled.

you have so much in flower,Homebird..much more than roses have still only got small buds..just one is showing some colour..and my Delphiniums have massive amounts of foliage but shorter flower spikes than last might be all the rain,responsible for that..

Like PimpI just love the top of your garden, no houses, just perfect, it is a very pretty garden you must be really pleased with what you have achieved, lovely HB.

You have a lovely garden HB. Would love to have as much room as you, and I love the dianthus.

Beautiful flowers HB - shame the weather not treating us more. Lovely garden though HB

You have such a lot to interest you Hbird it must be a pleasure to discover what is flowering each week. I love the long shot of the garden looks as if you could just carrying on walking into the great beyond.

Lovely garden HB and so many plants flowering. I'm amazed to see your runner beans in flower and looks as though you will have a nice crop of blackberries, the flowers look really pretty. I have the same cistus but the buds on mine are still firmly closed. It seems folk in the north of England are further ahead with their plants than those of us further south.
