Everythings coming up roses...


......well not just roses, though I do have a couple...

Despite our back garden being a 'postage stamp', I have been inspired over the last couple of years to still do as much as I can with it and plant into pots as many plants as I can afford, which at times has meant seeds and a lot of potting on!

But it would seem that the fruits of my labour are now showing, plants that have previously struggled seem to be flourishing this year, maybe due to the early warmth I don't know... but the pleasure of sitting out watching the birds and the bumble bees, listening to the river - well stream at the moment -trickling by - truly is one of life's  pleasures ....


 Surfinia, Viola, Nepeta, Bacopa......



 Eucalyptus, Ivy,Sweet Peas....




 The bees LOVE Bacopa......


 More Bacopa, Ivy, a Japonica that has loved being re-potted and a Clematis that I moved and is now thriving.....



 So Pretty.....Alyssum...




 A shady spot, caught in mid yawn....well, it is exhausting...


 I love Nepeta in pots and baskets and it seems to like the window box....



And lastly Homegrown strawberries outside for pudding - they are delicious!

Happy Gardening!

Warm Wishes for a Wonderful Week,

It looks really pretty! And I have just had some garden strawberries for supper, too - I think the warm weather has been good for them.
