A stroll in the garden on a lovely summery June day.....
The Blaze Climber, which is thriving so beautifully it threatens to take the shed wall
it grows against and run away down the lane!
Columbines from the garden on the hill
I should really have been more circumspect and taken the time to deadhead these
lovely roses before asking them to pose for a photo
This lemony yellow Iris is loaded with blooms and just seems to keep
adding sunshine to the back garden
while the delphinium from the old garden have reverted to white
and probably have ambitions to reach the roof top, they are
growing so straight and tall
The Abraham Darby, fragrant and my favourite
A nice clutch of lettuce for salads
and the gorgeous floxglove
a Mister Lincoln rose
and that lovely apricot Iris with the furry tongue
a pot of herbs
and more foxgloves with the pots that line the front sidewalk
the Heliotrope and the pinks make brushing by this pot a delight
a sunny welcome at the front steps
and the Blaze at the end of the side bed
A peony that hides behind the roses (above)
the new, tiny clematis along the back fence
at this stage of the game the delphinium look very fragile and fairylike
and over it all a blue sky and summer clouds...
I have much to be thankful for!
