17th July 11

July has been wet with hot/sunny bits in between. Perfect growing weather in fact!

Now I think this is superb! It's this kind of 'mass of colour' that we work so hard to create.
The crocosmia 'Lucifer' is in its prime
Back lawn
The island perennial bed in the front garden. we voted the hebe - with its 'firework' white flowers- as Plant of the Day.
The Heleniums in the border on the side lawn look great.
The pergola. Roses just going over.
A selection of dahlias
By the kitchen door
Busy Lizzies
Bog garden with astilbes and hostas
That slope again. It really does make me feel happy!
