It’s Been a While

It seems ages since I did a post, the weeks have flown by. The garden has now shifted into summer mode and it seems like everything is growing at twice it’s normal pace.

The new arch is up and running and my much photographed Wisteria is filling the larger space nicely. I lost a couple of Clematis from here but that means there’s now room for new ones.

We got up to a beautiful morning yesterday ( Sunday ) after having a small amount of very much needed rain during the night. We desperately need more…. ***

There’s loads to see here, but it’s always difficult to convey in pictures my view of it. Three peony have been and gone ‘Molly the Witch’, P’ Lutea and P’ Cambessedesii. Five different perennial wallflowers are flowering their socks off and the delphiniums are already head high. All the roses are responding well and saying thank you to all the TLC I gave them during the autumn and early spring. Baby blackbirds have flown the nest, running after their worn out parents begging for food, but the villain of a magpie is lurking about. I’ve already seen it pulling something apart in the tree, possibly a fledgling…..

Still seeing evidence of a hedgehog but only a fleeting sighting earlier in the year. Have a cheeky  field mouse again, pinching bird food.

All in all it’s a great time of year. Let’s hope the next few months give us as much pleasure….plus a lot more rain…..

***  Monday…They always say be careful what you wish for, well we have just had a good down pour and there’s much more to come this week….. I am grateful but it probably means working in the greenhouse.

  1. Good to see that view from above Sue – and good to know the wisteria is settling into its new home. Shame about the clematis though 😦 Once the open days are been and gone we need to replace the pergola that runs the length of the paved area and past the sitooterie and which houses about 7 roses and 3 clematis…should be fun….! Hope you have a great year in the garden

  4. All looking lovely! The Molly seedling you sent me is doing well, but not flowered yet. Next year, I’m sure. 🙂
