A walk around the garden this afternoon.

Beds are flowing over,dahlias at their best…..

The new border planned last year is also slightly over-planted…..a little re-shuffling will be necessary in the autumn….the Olive tree and Pineapple broom( grey leaved ) have grown such a lot…..the perennials seem very happy there.

The last photo shows the main rose bed….. haven’t been happy with this for a couple of years….will probably take out a few of the roses and change the format…..Looking down from the house,the tall roses prevent us seeing the new border…..so looks like October will be busy!

the garden does look lovely Meadow. I also have over stuffed borders but I find I don't seem to take enough out to make a difference. :o)

Thank you SB ...I feel exactly the same...trying to minimize it a little before we go away..not such a shock when you arrive home!

Lovely pictures Julia! You have very clean well manicured lawn areas! Borders look lovely too, lots of textures and colour.

I have been out raking my lawn. I have a lot of dead grass that I don't normally have. Maybe too much rain isn't good either.
