That is lovely, Bob.
More wonderful gardens. Thank you everyone for sharing
Bob, I love your garden
Bob- where there's a will there's a way- you keep putting the plants in - lovely jubbly!
It's not you Lead - some of the pix don't enlarge - it's something to do with the size of them or something. Someone techy will explain it! I use an external site and transfer them and they seem to work fine but I didn't do anything so it may be that my camera's just suitable in some way.
Netherfield- great views- you must love it.
Isn't it lovely seeing everyone else's gardens whether they are big, small, urban or rural, cottagey, contemporary or grand.

Great Pictures BL, and a nice tidy garden.
We've had the landscape Gardeners in all this week so lawn is now patchy where we stood some pots etc which we'd had on the patio (now replaced) + I made the mistake of laying the glass patio table top on the lawn for a couple of hours and burn't a big circle in the grass!! . Greenhouse produce is the best this year that I've ever had in 47 years at this property. It's a new Robinson GH I bought myself as a birthday prezzie last October. Courgettes have now taken over and I'm picking 5 or 6 a day. Made a courgette bake last weekend: Courgettes, Tomatoes, Garlic, Creme Fraiche, & a topping of Gluten Free breadcrumbs, Parmesan, Gruyere, Olive oil & fresh herbs - really yummy. All had to be gluten free because our daughter & grand-daughters are Coeliacs but it really was delicious. Yum Yum!
PS: link to the recipe =
LG - oh you're pics are soooo beautiful, love the acer/lily combo.
Bright orange works so well with deep plummy reds and purples doesn't it? Lovely pix Bev. Orange is one of those colours that people either seem to love or hate. They make a real statement though. I had 2 big pots of orange lilies either side of conservatory doors at last house
Bev, lovely pics, fantastic orange lily.
Fabulous pics LG, love the colours, particularly the Orange against the Acer. Second pic almost looks as if it's on fire!
Few weeks ago posted office of the emerging flower on my yucca that I've had in a pot for several years. This is what it looks like today....
Not sure what I expecked it to look like, but not like this. The flower stalk is over 3 1/2 foot tall. Unfortunately, no scent.
Posted office? Spell checker on iPad working overtime! I mean 'posted picture', of course!
Tim it's a cracker! The flowers are quite striking on yukkas. I love seeing flowers on these more 'exotic' looking plants - perhaps because they don't happen quite so often so it's more of an event. Phormium flowers are terrific too if you're fortunate enough to get them. They remind me of Strelitzias.
John -you win some you lose some! You can console yourself about the burnt lawn by enjoying the fruits - literally - of your labours in the greenhouse
Nice pics folks. Gardens are clearly enjoying this weather,too.
Hi Fg, Have been watering the burnt lawn well each evening and green shoots can be seen pushing through already. Will try and upload some pictures and show before & after re the new patio and raised herb bed in the next couple of days although the pics I took before work commenced don't really show how bad the old patio had got. Funny how the camera doesn't always show reality!
Just had aquick look at all these lovely garden pictures. Here are some of mine, what greeted me on return home
The rose is Veilchenbrau. It is a rambler(new) so needs pinning to wall.
Here is my eremurus which I wasn't sure would grow surrounded by a froth of nicotiana mutabilis, with verbena bonariensis and field chrysanths. Not permanent planting!
Fabulous pics everyone!
Especially love the orange lilies and reading about all those gardening triumphs including John Harding's crop circle and courgette bake
