We have had a lot of rain lately but for the past couple of weeks the weather has been lovely, it hasn't been one of our best Summers so I'm really enjoying what left of it before the autumnal weather kicks in.
An English summer to me is tea and a favourite magazine in the garden.
Strawberries with cream and roses.. (Sombreuil Tea Rose)
Always fresh flowers for the house.
This is Campanula Pyraidali 'Blue Diadem'
I'm not a garden that's out in all weathers, it has to be a nice day and then I potter really but recently I have made some changes. A neighbour was knocking down an out building in his garden and kindly let me have the lovely old bricks, so I decided to lay a path which I will fill with pea shingle/gravel.
I have also moved my metal arch to create a little seating area, which I've planted with lots of scented plants, Roses, Jasmine and lots of Lavender
Favourite plants in my garden at the moment Sedum (not in flower here) and Verbena Bonariensis.
