the boarder under mums window,busy lizzies,verbena and geraniums

these double petunias were a bargain.

baskets this year are a mix of petunias,double petunias,and fuschias.

yep,they came this year they are still coming as this was taken yesterday.i really need to clean pond,but cant til they leave.bless.

these were picked yesterday, pink champagne peonies and the red roses, from a bush that was here when we moved 18 years ago,and it was old then.the smell of the roses are wonderful.
So,just a few pics to brighten the gloom,the weather is awful,i had to get out of bed at 3am and close my bloody bedroom window,it was perishing,north gale blowing,we had a sea mist yesterday and today there is a fine drizzle,and its cold. have a good time in your own gardens whatever this british summer throws at us. take care all.

Thank You Mort your garden is a picture as usual. I don;t know how you do it. Mine is looking quite bad this year. I have only done one hanging basket I put trailing sweet peas in but nothing much has far...I just didn;t seem to have the energy this year it's been such a funny year weatherwise and I donlt have a greenhouse to protect the wee plants and the bigger ones cost so much...Anyway it is doubly good to see yours full of blooms. Thank You ( we have had a glorious day warm and sunny,)
Love Sybil xx

Your garden looks wonderful my dear friend, but then it always does. Glorious. Great photos. I have not done so much this year in the actual garden. Tubs around the koi pond are all lizzies, petunias in tubs elsewhere, a few geraniums and three hanging baskets at the front. I think my gardening days are coming to an end. Mike has had to do most of it this year and now he has a terrible back.

How lovely to have ducks,that is something we do not get around here. Weather not too bad at moment here but could be warmer.
