1st July 07

Rain, rain, rain. As the country slowly sinks, I have never seen the garden so verdant. Usually at this time of year I spend all my time watering. Haven't done that for a month now!

This gives you an idea of the colour right now
Mass of flowers!

Bog garden has filled up with gunera and astilbes going great guns
View over to the belvedere
Lavender at its zenith
View to the pond

A reminder of the drought condition this time last year. The grass at the end of June 06.
As a result, I tried o plant drought tolerant plants this year. But the geraniums are now ROTTING!
Can't win!
