Don't flowers look amazing when viewed close-up? This is a pic I took of a humble begonia:

  Sorry....It looked better pre-posting.

Thank you, Kate...I think reducing to fit here spoiled it a little though.

I'm new here and have just spent far too long looking at all these lovley photos when I should be outside weeding my raspberries..however...before I go, I'd like to share this...


This is a petunia grandiflora from last year. It was T&M F1 seed, and one plant yielded over 100 blooms at one point. This year I am trying Kings seeds. They are doing ok, but no pics as the wind had battered a lot of them and they sre shredded to ribbons.

Hello, Tina, they look lovely...and all that weather to cope with.

This is an all petunia hanging basket of mine:

This is my 'sit-a-while' corner. I can't see how much work the veg beds and fruit garden needs when I sit here!

 The squirrel comes too. he is very tame.

David, that looks beautiful! I live five minutes walk from the coast, and it's often very windy. I only have one hanging basket and I keep it in the apple least it gets a bit of shelter!

Those petunias are amazing!  I recently took this one of my clematis which I have planted through an old rose bush - only my second year of gardening but I well and truly have the bug!!


01/07/2012 at 21:19

I love clematis. That's a beauty! My other half is the clematis collector and grower in our garden.

Gardening just grabs you by throat and won't let go. I've been grubbing about in the dirt since I was a toddler..literally. My mother worked at a plant nurseries and used to take me with her (in those days you could). I used to sit under her potting bench and play with the discarded seedlings and make mud pies! It's my earliest memory.

Tina - perhaps you may like this pic of my clematis 'Niobe'. I think it's pretty remarkable for the sheer number of blooms on it:



02/07/2012 at 09:37

Oh,David, that is a beauty! What a fantastic colour! I don't think 'im outdoors (my other half), has got that one. No room for more though I'm afraid. I've been wandering round the garden looking for spaces )or some lawn to dig up and make another bed). I need more space!


Lililouside..your garden is just beautiful!



02/07/2012 at 09:53

Thanks, Tina..I've been looking for another pic that gives a better idea of the number of blooms, this is the only one I could find:

 Btw, I planted it to cover an unsightly clothes post.

02/07/2012 at 09:58

That is a lovely plant! I bought a Doctor Ruppel, as I liked the colouring, but I think that solid pink is nicer. I'm sure I can find a spot somewhere...probably in next doors garden! LOL!

02/07/2012 at 10:42

This is one that takes up no room at all,'s named Perle d' Azur and grows in the canopy of my old damson tree.

First Dahlia of the year
