CliveA - I had my honeymoon in Finland by a lake. Loved it. Off to Iceland next week for anniversary.
Busy today but will post photos tomorrow as getting a bit obsessed! (garden not hols).
thanks for all the comments the pear tree i got from my neighbor last year so know nothing about it most off the smaller pears have fallen off i too have a green fly problem due to the lack of ladybugs this year have not seen 1
had loads out the front last year where are they
Artjak: thanks for advice.
Garden has grown a lot while I've been away. Unfortunately so have the weeds and some plants, like delphiniums have outgrown their stakes.
Nice garden busy L.
Love your garden BL; are the yellow plants in pic 1 Erymurus? I grew some once from seed and slugs took the lot
Borders are brill & the Clematis are stunning, what a lovely show.
Blooming lovely BL
BusyL, I swear I can smell your garden
Lizzie all is growing beautifully. It was really nice meeting you whilst you were here
...I do love your borders Busy-Lizzie.... is that Clematis 'Etoile Violette' in full bloom there...? if so it's well in front of mine, which is in bud but no flowers yet... in a few days I think... it's very late this year - almost a month behind...
..I see you have a nice Phygelius out too...
Thank you everyone. Yes, John, they are Eremurus coming out. It was great to meet you too, Bev. Salino, I don't know the name, a friend gave me the cutting and she'd forgotten. I like the name Etoile Violette and it does look like that.
Gorgeous Lizzie - isn't it nice to go away for a while and have your garden surprise you when you get back
Lovely garden B-L. The clematis is lovely. In fact, it's all lovely.
A few pictures of my garden to share with you all...it's small but it's mine
Why do some photos enlarge when you click on them and some don't? Does it make a difference if you use a phone i pod or camera or is it the machine you sent them by, laptop, mac or i pod etc? I use a camera and a laptop and mine enlarge when I click on them, but do they enlage for anyone else clicking on them?
Hi Busy-Lizzie I'm viewing this on my iPhone today and if I give a long tap on your photos (not a quick tap which just enlarges the page or a hold down which gives you the option to "save the image" etc) then it enlarges the photo by opening it in another browser page. Very lovely they are too!! I'm after a clematis like that to grow through a lilac tree but I want one that flowers later so that once the lilac had finished flowering the clematis fills it with colour again. I think a white lilac would look great with a contrasting dark clematis like yours.
Thanks daisyhc and bl, love seeing your pics. No idea about enlarging pics sorry.
A few things from my garden.
Killing off the A. Mollis
Don't know what this, view of spike next
Bulbs need taking out of pots
Tad too close together.
Waiting for free Cosmos to have some flowerheads.
Don't think I was meant to grow flowers, I'm having a problem downsizing some pics, so they will enlarge, all problem ones seem to be flower ones. I do have some Clematis and pretty stuff, honest. Paint box keeps saying it can't save them and then wipes them out. Must be me.
KEF your photos do enlarge. I like the way you have the veg growing in with the flowers, cottage gardeny but with a nice lawn.
