All looking amazing, especially love RB's little summerhouse? with the climbers but josh aren't you brave putting that combo together

I can't yet find the courage to mix my clematis groups

Major sleep in this morning  OH says its because I'm busy everyday, I guess he's right

Still contemplating my last border to's in the purple and white garden so it's important to get the balance right between the colours which can include pinks and blues (so not that exclusive), but also how much will they be shaded by my growing sambucus. it's a baby at the moment but this will be it's third year. I guess the answer is to plant and see...there's always next year to move stuff

Anyone done any gardening today?

Had to visit B&Q first thing and came home with some lovely salvias

Then it was out in the garden to plant 3 separate iris and one shrub followed by a fair amount of mulching.

Also arrange plants in a bare patch to decide on the planting combos...I may yet change my mind

Gorgeous hot day, no complaints

Save me a chair later BM  they will go down a treat at the end of the day

Just back from B&Q, OH sent me for some supplies he wanted and I found some Salvias had stuck to my bottom half way home

I don't mind having the plants, but its desperation when they cling in all the wrong places with sticky labels!!!

Off into the garden then, so much to do

Thanks guys, it's very new planting and obviously you can't feel the atmosphere through a picture but I'm over the moon with how it's shaping up
