We finally got some rain last night and awoke to the garden looking and feeling very fresh. The flowers were certainly grateful for the water ...
|Irises worthy of Monet's garden !|
|I love sweetpeas :)|
|A rogue poppy in amongst the lilies|
|A solitary lupin !|
|Henny Penny (Dorothy) peeking from behind the mint !|
And one of our greatest successes is the rose plant we bought to train around the front door. We only bought it about 5 weeks ago and look how it's blooming ! ...
Our neighbours are secretly jealous. They have been growing roses to go around their front door since they moved in over a year ago... And whilst the roses aren't doing so bad, they certainly aren't as impressive as ours ! Not that we are competitive or anything :)
My husband is currently up at the allotment tackling the ever-increasing weeds. I have an excuse not to go - my hayfever. Still, I do feel rather guilty as I'm sat at home in my PJs with the girls on the sofa and my husband is slaving away to provide us with lovely fresh veggies. I shall have to treat him to something nice tomorrow for Father's Day.
