art- I wondered about Wintersong's little hut too -also thought it was a beehive.

Nut - I looked up the link you gave and it's identical to the geranium so many thanks for that-wouldn't have doubted you for a minute! Love Mrs. Sinkins too   - recognised it's lovely frilly edges right away. Used to have it many years ago - beautiful scent.

Mrs Sinkins has been around a long time but she's still one of the best for scent

I took a lot more photos today, you wouldn't believe how awful some of them are

Lovely pictures everyone, gardenings great

The garden was radically changed last year and the path is the last thing to be finished, still work in progress. The dog is a cat but I'm sure he will pleased

I WISH the little hut was a beehive, I'd be honoured and very proud! Its actually a very dilapidated compost bin shaped like a beehive

Lovely pictures all, thanks for sharing, looking at everyone's gardens is fascinating, I love it, better than all the gardening magazines put together.

Here is our standard wisteria - we have been training it for the last 15 years !!  Started in a pot, but is now stretching its roots in the ground:

 And here are some of the things that deer don't eat

Lovely long flowers on the wisteria chicky

Nice to know the deer left you something

19/06/2013 at 22:00

All the plants deer eat go in the cage you can see behind the wisteria.  The deer can then only poke their noses through the bars and salivate.  Unfortunately the newly arrived bunny is another story ....

Sensational Chicky. Thanks for sharing!

Great looking wisteria and my, isn't that ~cage~ just the ticket for keeping out deer but what an expensive palaver or was it already there?

Lovely garden Chicky... strange that you have more problems with deer than I do  and William the Conqueror lived here to hunt them because there were so many.

19/06/2013 at 22:18

Chicky love that wisteria

19/06/2013 at 22:20

Wintersong - expensive palaver - although OH constructed most of it, with me holding the spirit level and contributing words of encouragement.  Its basically my flower garden - so we tried to make a feature of it in itself.  Worth every penny as far as I'm concerned - it means I can grow tulips and roses again

19/06/2013 at 22:28

Thanks Bev and WW. 

If William the Conqueror wants a job, I will happily give him a bed for the night (do you think he would dispatch bunnies too??)

I think the difference might be that deer are culled in the Forest but out there in the wider world the numbers just keep growing. Something will have to be done... and they taste so good too!

Some beautiful plants in the photos everyone!  We must remember to enjoy the fruits of our efforts especially at this time of the year and this thread is a great way to do it.

I find it's all too easy to be kept so busy weeding, watering etc that I sometimes forget to just sit in the garden and enjoy looking at it!

I have the same problem Bob! You're dead right though- we need to sit down and enjoy our gardens too.

I think this is a penstemon, a tiny one, I bought it at a plant fair last year and it hadn't got a label when i got it home

Anyone know what it is?

Nut, could it be a phygelius or cape fuschia?
