The wet weather has continued. Which means that the garden is looking better than in most previous years when we have 'suffered' a really hot spell or drought by now.
|I love the way the brilliant red crocosmia sticks through the blanket of plants on the main slope
|The sheep seem to be happy with the weather too!
|Sheep to left of greenhouse. This is the 'office' annexe
|The runner beans/green beans/peas have done very well. Most dinners are 'home-grown' right now.
|We bought these copper flowers at the Hampton Court Flower Show
|The pots on the patio are a riot of colour
|The pond is quite magical right now
|...as is the bog garden
|The roses on the belvedere have never been better. Might have something to do with the deer not getting at them this year for the first time!
