We have spent the afternoon gardening and it is begining to show how much we have done.
The flowers are now beginning to flower; all late because of the late spring.
This heron was my Aunt's pride and joy, she used to repaint it each year and I did at first, but I think it looks better not so white. It seems to blend in better with the variegated grasses and foxgloves with the look of ageing. Saying that she died in 1990, and she had had it for a few years before that, so it is old!
It was she that brought me up with my grand mother after my mother died when I was two, and I still miss her. She would have loved this garden and would have been so proud of my successes!
When ever she came to stay from Wales, where I had labels on my seeds in the garden, she used to tease me by saying, the labels had grown!
My pots which I do every year and grow most of the flowers from seed. It keeps me busy and happy to see the all the colours. I never have themed colour beds or pots I like all the colours together.
And this is our tiny veg patch. We have another at the top of the garden and of course I grow quite a few plants in the green house. Edging the path are strawberries and they are already ripening.
This bottom end is my herb garden, today we had mint to complement our lamb dinner
I am crocheting at the moment and may be showing soon, although I still have a lot to do to get this project finished.
