I've been taking some pictures in the garden over the past month. Some of the flowers are already past now; like this laburnum.
This rhododendron flowers quite late in the year.
The baby birch trees are still coming on well. Remember the husband built this stone edifice? For some reason it collapsed but has been rebuilt.
I love to see broom flowering.
We had a great display of alliums this year; this is just a few of them.
The black elder had just started flowering in this picture. I'm hoping to pick the flowers very soon to make pink elderflower cordial, like last year.
Lots of purple flowers.
A few new plants for the front doorstep.
The husband made this wind chime!
These shells were collected while we were on holiday.
The wild flower bed just started to bloom.
Lots of the herbs have flowered too.
Gorgeous irises this year.
And we're still having another great display of poppies.
The fruit and vegetables are progressing nicely. Here's just one picture of some of the potatoes flowering. We've started eating the potatoes already. Just scrubbed and boiled in their skins. Delicious! As are the strawberries.
That was a very quick overview of the garden over the past few weeks. Of course, it is constantly changing.
All the best for now. Hope to be back soon with more crochet; thanks for all your lovely comments about the crocheted shawl.
