I always think our garden is more of a Spring garden than a Summer garden if you know what I mean, everything is at last coming out into colour. Here is the top left looking out away from our bungalow, after the pond... we're trying to keep it mostly shrubs this year for ease of maintenance..
then about 50' down to the left we have this corner - just before the raised shingle area at the end of the garden. The blossom is all out on the apple tree to the left, the lilac bush to the right needs cutting down somewhat and the wallflowers are out..
Thanks Lesley, unfortunately we didn't ever get around to cutting much back last Autumn and some shrubs have just become enormous. That old lilac has been there for years and is more like a tree nowadays But it gives us a bit of privacy from next door, although there are very pleasant people living there.
What a lovely colours in you garden Marie The pink bush on the top picture, are that rhododendrons ? We also have them yet in flower, at least one bush of them. For the moment the vase on the pond is cracked, so we have to invent something else for that.
Thank you! Nothing is ever 'tidy' in our garden, things just come up where they seed most of the time. There's also a lot of trial and error involved as I don't sometimes know how tall a plant or shrub will grow and so it all ends up haphazard
The pink shrub in the photo is an azalea Maddie, we also have a red one closer to the pond which unfortunately is almost over now. I wish they would last longer.
Lovely pics Marie, seemed you had a good time and good weather for fishing. Here it's also nice weather, not too warm but dry. I just finished the yearly cleaning of the garage, it's dustfree again, I cleaned the freezer and now I feel my arms. Time to rest and look around a bit on my fav sites Have a good Bank Holiday. We have one more day off tomorrow, Liberation Day. But I don't think there will be many festivities, the whole country is still thinking at what happened on Queens Day.
