July, rose and baskets.

July, rose and baskets.

If you can tilt your heads ninety degrees to the left without your wigs falling off (ladies), you can see here my miniature patio garden, mid summer. Rose 'William Shakespeare', an intensely scented David Austin rose. The fuchsias are 'Lady Thumb' (max height 15") and 'Dollar Princess'. Light pink petunias 'soften' the rather strong deep reds. The so-tactile 'wooly thyme' is in the white urn (wonderful to touch).

Wow its gorgeous Johnathan....I just put in William Shakespeare last summer. I am hoping it has come through our cold winter unscathed.
Welcome to GOY.... :o)

Now that's what I call a garden! Created with great love and passion. You are an artist, Jonathan, with both colour and words. I enjoyed my visit immensely and look forward to returning. (It makes my tiny patch look very drab, at the moment at least!) I think I wll take a leaf from your, and Spritzhenry's, book and plant some bulbs for next year. Many thanks for the inspiration. Jan
