Isn`t it wonderful to see the sunshine,

22 comments


and the effect its having on the garden after all the rain we had. I find the roses especially are giving their all and its a delight to take in their heady perfume.
Dixieland Linda is being entertained by a little fairy

and she seems to be enjoying it.lol.

Wildthing living up to its name sprawling together with white daisies, hardy geraniums and `Tom Thumb` fuchsia.

The fish are enjoying this weather and the rose `Albertine` is giving off its heady perfume as it climbs over the garden shed.

Sophies perpetual languishes against the fence, this photo does not do justice to the intense shade of cerise that it has.

I like to sit here when the weather is very hot to enjoy my morning cuppa and admire Lazy days and Iceberg.

and looking out from the patio Aloha, Handel, Graham Thomas and Phyllis Bides never fail to please me and the perfume is better than anything you get from a bottle.

This last photo is not of a rose but of a tiny bit of Erigeron that was kindly sent to me by TT and is rewarding me and adorning my steps from the patio each year with its dainty flowers.


Some of you may have seen similar photos other years but the garden gives such pleasure that you just have to share.
We shall enjoy it for another couple of weeks before heading of to Limoge and Paris and hope that the weather is as good when we get back.

We had rain every day this past week since last Monday and everything cleared up this morning with the first full sun to be seen since five days ago and the temperature in the 80's F. Sounds like parallel weather. My cottage garden is really taking off now. Your garden stairway photo is a work of art.

What a great collection of roses. Your garden must smell lovely in the evening. Can the fairy play trad jazz for the Dixieland rose I wonder?

Karen ... I`m sure the Erigeron will do fine for you, thank you for your kind comments.
Michaella ... I know how you love your roses and I don`t think you would be disappointed with `Albertine` it does only flower once but its well worth waiting for.
Loosestrife ... Yes we are getting a good balance of sunshine and rain at the moment and everything is going wild.
Daylily ... thanks glad you like it, and I hope Paris lives up to expectations, been to other parts of France but its a first for Paris.
Wildrose ... The poor little fairy has had one of her wings broken off, I think it may have been one of the pigeons that keeps landing on her, OH has managed to glue it together thank goodness.
Steragram ... Oh I just wish she could.
Yes Sinbad ... its beautiful rose and I think all the roses have done well this year.
Thanks Kidsgran ... been to France many times but its a first for Paris so I`m hoping I won`t be disappointed.

What a beautiful garden you have Stroller. There doesn't seem to be space for a pin between all your lovely flowers. Your roses are especially gorgeous, I'm afraid roses don't seem to like me very much, I always end up with one problem or another so I'm envious of people like you who have such beautiful blooms to enjoy. Enjoy your trip to France.
