End of the Month : May 2014
WELCOME to my garden.
Hope you enjoy wandering around. The rain has been stealing the Aquilegia petals but there are still a few at the gate here and the roses are opening beautifully.
The plants are filling out in the 'new' front garden but I have got to tie up the sweetpeas tomorrow. The honeysuckle has recovered from the drastic chop a few months ago so that need fastening round the front door frame too (but we are having new windows fitted in the porch next week so the honeysuckle will have to wait). The poppies are adding a wonderful splash of colour - shame they only last a few days.
Here is the monthly record shot from the greenhouse door. I like to compare these photos to see the differences from the same spot:
Its looking a bit washed out this week - I've started taking the Forget-me-nots out now they have gone over. I scatter the seeds for next year as I pull them up. I think the other plants sigh with relief at having a bit of room once they have gone!
This is the view from the kitchen door. A couple of the lupins are now passed their best but if you could hear the bees in this border .... there are far too many to count and as for identifying them ... I gave up trying there were so many this afternoon.
The rose arch is my pride and joy this week. We bought it three years ago and the roses grown on either side are just about to meet now.
Well, thanks for visiting. Pop over to the Patient Gardener's blog for more End of Month views.
