Wish the Sun had his hat on


My garden like so many others is too wet to work in, but the flowers are enjoying it. The hardy geraninum’s have joined forces with the (yet to bloom) large yellow daisy’s making a jungle.

I did manage to fight my way through to find the slabs and clear a small area so i could tidy and tie back some plants but then once again down came the rain!

I am fighting a losing battle so I am just enjoying the garden the way it is and pottering about on the paved area and trying to keep the pot’s going.

Clematis? – It is such a lovely colour.

Campanula – White and Blue a bit battered but still nice.

Campanula – Purple just coming into flower.

Campanula – A small ice blue one.

Rose of Sharon – A lovely bit of sunshine in the front to finish.

What a stunning Clematis. They love the rain, so not all our plants suffer thank goodness.
