Beautiful Garden & pathways

4 Jun, 2015

 

Meadowland your garden is fabulous. Is the geranium Midnight Reiter? Its a beauty - pity it doesn't flower for longer but the leaves are lovely all summer aren't they?
That's a really beautiful red rose on the wall - is it scented?

Brilliant! So colourful and well kept. We had a windless day today! It was amazing. I was working all day without being beaten up around my head. It was even fairly warm...ish. I hope we'll get more days like that!

Thank you Bathgate,Stera and K. Stera,that is Geranium "Midnight Reiter"......flower colours haven't come out as lilac as they really are.....but as you say,the dark foliage is beautiful.....have had to prop it up with the cat......if you can see it!

One of my favourite geraniums. :)

See what you mean about the colour. Its difficult to get it right in strong sunshine isn't it, and hard to remember to wait for an overcast day - never remember until its too late. I hadn't realised it was a cat - good idea. I've bought some of those half circle supports for floppy plants - got a couple of rusty ones and some green ones. The green were a mistake - the rusty ones are much more inconspicuous. I don't think our cat would lie still enough to be much use for the job and the only garden ornament I have is a small duck by the pond.

I had to go back to find the cat, lol, it looks grand M'land, thankyou for sharing...

LOL,Lincs.......you can just see it.....I'm not really one for garden ornaments.....but this was given to me from a close friend which makes a difference.
The half circle supports are great,Stera.....each year I say I must buy some.....I should think the rusty ones are just right in the garden.

Yes, it took me several years to work myself up to it but glad I did.

Thank you,Seaburn.......mine is doing well in poor soil and a place which has full sun for half the day......I do water it well every other day.

Yes, alternate days of sun and then rain... that will make everything grow quickly.. my gardens really need the rain .. were so parched from recent dry weeks.
