The End Of A Wet and Blustery May


Cant believe the weather, Sunny,Rainy, cold and Windy! I have just been out with my camera as the sun was making everything look Jewel like, but I only managed 5 minutes and Its now heavy rain again. Any way hope you will enjoy these beauties I managed to snap before the rain had me scurrying indoors!

Choisya Ternata (Mexican Orange Blossom)Lovely for its shiny leaves, Starry Flowers and its perfume!

Thalictrum a Favourite of mine! Love the little round buds that open into lovely feathery flowers.

Chives (From Sandra) looknig so Neat and pretty;0)

Poppies In Bud( Princess Victoria Louise,showing lots of promise;0)

Forget Me Nots and Bugle make a charming combination

A Mingle! very common in my borders lol

“Saxifrage”, These lovely star like little flowers are lighting up the darkest corners everywhere

“Erysimum” Bowles Mauve Is another of my favourites flowering right through the summer;0)

“Dicentra” Love Lies Bleeding, one I could never be without, love the Golden Foliage and the pink Hearts;0)

“Geum” The pretty bright Orange Flowers look especially good growing near the Welsh Poppies, always think of the childhood song “Orange and Lemons”

“Welsh Poppy” A very welcome addition it seeds itself throughout the garden, very pretty near to the Geum, always reminds me of the childhood song “Orange and Lemons”

“Fragari” I always call this one the strawberry plant and love it for its sweet little fruits ad attractive scarlet flowers;0)

“A mingle On The Rockery” The little minature golden Euphorbia as seeded itself all over, but I dont mind it looks so attractive bringing all the other little plants togethe, you may be able to see myAstrantia from Hywel ;0)

Well friends will save the rest of my beauties for another day, Hope you all enjoyed your little visit;0))

Hi Lincs pleased you enjoyed your tour around my garden, the weather has been dreadful, I have been popping out between showers, much nicer today though;0)

Hi Phyl good to see you around, hope you are feeling better, My Thalictrum seeds are growing very slowly, but once you have one established they do seed themselves around! good luck with yours ;0)

So many of the flowers you grow in your garden - I grow in mine. Lovely pictures and a real tour of your charming garden. The yellow Welsh Poppies are now all over my garden and I would not be without them. I first 'acquired' them on a visit to Balmoral in Scotland when bending over a couple of the seed heads and they accidentally came off in my hand and found their way in an old envelope and in my pocket.

4 Jun, 2015


Lol Johnp, its funny that should happen to you its happened to me too on a number of occasions Ha Ha

6 Jun, 2015
