The sun decided to make it to Frome today so here are some photos from my garden, with a little help from Poppy too.
We took my father in law out for a birthday treat last week to a nice garden centre near Dorchester (about 40 miles south of here). While there, I couldn't resist this new clematis that is clump forming, only growing to one foot high! Perfect for a pot I thought!The Hostas are doing well, I'm not sure where the slugs and snails are this year, but I'm very grateful that they haven't made an appearance so far! (digits crossed).Poppy really likes spending time in our Laburnum tree pot. It's just outside the kitchen window so she can reach up and beg to come in from there! (-: At the moment, she is having endless fun with the fallen cherries!Occasionally she gets distracted from cherries by a passing bird or a photographer!After time spent cherry batting, it's time for some serious chilling out.She's watching a bird on the feeder here I think! Gulp!Here's another type of fern that I have growing in the garden. They're such useful and beautiful plants I think.And my miniature Iris is about to burst forth. It's loaded with flowers so should look fantastic in a week or so.In the small veg plot, the potatoes need earthing up again. The ground on the left will have Runner Beans put in shortly (my Mum has grown some on for me and I'll be picking them up this coming weekend hopefully).Lastly, I attempted a clever photo of the reflection of our Laburnum tree on our conservatory windows. Not sure it really worked, but there you go! (-: By the way, the stained glass in the back door was made by my hugely talented husband (Chris), take a look at his website at www.ArtsandCraftsDesign.com if you're interested in Arts and Crafts. That's all for now folks!
