There is just so much growth all round this year. I'm pruning shrubs to stop them breaking in the downpours. 

Phlomis russelliana has reached new heights

All the shrubs in my garden. In fact my whole garden has just exploded this year. I have been pruning shrubs (some with a saw!) for the past 3 weeks and digging out a host of self seeded aquilegias.

...I'm beginning to wish the slugs had actually eaten my viticellas...

Hellebores seem to have done exceptionally well this year as has Campanula carpatica.

Weeds aren't too far behind either

Alliums are growing for the first time.  At 45 degrees since the downpour yesterday!

slugs and snails are the over achievers in my garden ;thanks to the mild winter and virtually no frost.

Swet william in my garden has gone mad, this is its third year and taking over, I have pulled some out but I feel sorry for it becuse it is full of buds.

Our Poppies are both under and over achievers, they came up strong and healthy opened one day and were ruined by the torrential rain the next day, not a plant i would have in my Scottish garden but it's not my garden it's OUR garden....

Slugs and weeds.

Definitely slugs and weeds.

My garden is the same.Aquilegias in particular have been very tall and vibrant,I suppose weather conditions have been ideal for plants.That said,the leftover Foxglove seeds I sowed in the garden are not showing any signs of germinating yet.

Not like me to have great success but these were grown from seed give in 2012.
