Morning all - just. Had a good day yesterday - dry for once - doing the entries for friends holding an Open Garden. 80+ visitors in the end. It closed at 5 so at 4:45 I decided it was probably safe to close the cash box and go round and do my own visit but 8 more turned up! It's a one hectare garden and some people spend 2 hours in there taking it all in. Flipping cheek.
We've had constant rain for 3 weeks now so the blousier roses were looking soggy and bedraggled but still lots of roses looking good, plenty of buds to come out and all the summer perennials still to do their thing. Lots of variety of form and colour and texture in the foliage of assorted trees and shrubs, a new epimedium and hosta bed - http://s211.photobucket.com/user/Obelixx_be/library/160619%20Fleurisart?sort=2&page=1
Cold and windy again today with rain on its way but I have treasures to pot up and that can be done in the garage or shed if needed. The weeds are having a laugh and the slugs a feast so I need to get cracking on those as and when rain permits.
DD - I hope you get things sorted as best as possible and don't have to give up the house after all the hard work you've put in to both B&B and garden.
Busy - sounds like you're having a fine time.
Panda - good colours.
Happy gardening to all who can and get well soon to all the crocks on the sofa.
