A wet day so take a walk with me on a sunny day!


Everything has come on so quickly this year, so have put it down to the weeks of rain and then sun.
I apologise now as this will be a long walk!

There are 9 Rhodies altogether but I was too late taking a photo of them before the flowers dropped off.

This was Rick’s favourite rose.

I do love these but which they would flower for longer!

My favourite shrub. The Viburnham Marisii

I just can’t believe how early everything is and know I have said this before, but am hoping all my plants will still continue into the summer!

I took photos of the roses when they were just opening and then yesterday took more as they are now all in flower.
I hope you enjoyed your " long walk!"
Take care everyone!

Amazing roses! And the second photo of the Rhody is beautiful Rose. It's amazing to see how much you have going on this early in the season. It's very different to my new garden which is only just starting to wake up. Lovely sunny walk. Thank you. :)
