Garden after much rain

Getting a bit fed up of all this rain now! The winds have died down though but some plants are being ruined.
Love’s Knot rose round the secret door is full of blooms but they aren’t looking as good as they should. THe rose growing up the old clothes pole was looking amazing but now it hangs its head down looking weary of the wet weather.
SOme plants are thriving and others are being destroyed, lucky to have anything looking good really!

Still a lot going on in your garden, though, despite the weather. I've been lucky here in two ways - not so much rain and, being further north, flowers are not really out yet to get spoiled.
Love the foxgloves - among my favourites, too.

Pixi what is the plant with the small pink flower? Your red climbing rose looks very much like the one here which flowers so well every year and has a heady fragrance.

My foxgloves are now sideways gloves!!

It's not looking too bad, Pix, considering how bad the weather has been...

I think its doing remarkably well Pixi and your Love knot rose is lovely .. I planted one last year up an old gate that I stood in the garden as a feature, its almost to the top. Looks as if you`ve got a nice pot full of sweet peas to look forward to.

Our gardens have taken a right old bashing recently and yet our shrubs and flowers are still rewarding us they are amazingly resilient and soon bounce back in the sunlight.
Yours is looking good Pixi, I`ve grown foxgloves this year but obviously don`t yet know what colours I`ll have, I hope I get one like yours its a gorgeous colour, I also have honeysuckle just coming out and the perfume is lovely especially in the evenings
Btw watch out, there`s a lady after your roses, lol...

Lovely colour that purple foxglove is, that rose is gorgeous and the sweat peas are coming along nicely.

Thansk Popedot..I jsut nailed a bit of wood to the shed so the honeysuckle could grow over it..i had willow but it wasn't very thick and the birds jumping up and down on it caused it to collapse a bit..anyway once it gorws over you wont see the wood lol :)
