A short stroll round the garden . . .

. . . on the 14th June. I think the sun went in just as I was taking the photos – perhaps I should have waited.

Looking good, Sheila ... your penstemons are super.

The pink salvia stole the show for me! I hope my scrawny blue one looks as nice as yours. Tips welcomed!

It's lovely Sheila, gentle soothing colours, my fave is Geranium Patricia, just beautiful. I was inspired to paint my outside table and chairs ebony, after seeing your dark seating, I'm really pleased with it too..:))

Thanks very much Terra.

Thanks Paul - I’m guessing your blue Salvia is a perennial? I only have one (S. Amistad) and it’s still small. My deep pink Salvias are the shrubby ones ... cut right back in Spring and then they really burgeon!

Thank you Janey 🙂 I’m delighted you were inspired by the colour of the seating - I love it too.

Looking good! I love the red Penstemon - not seen one before.

Thanks Sue, it’s very easy to take cuttings from. If you’re very good I could take some for you, but it will be weeks before they make enough root to survive the mail ...

Looks such a lovely mixture of frothy, soft colours so pleasing on the eye.
My favourite picture is the third one.
You have a very attractive area to sit also.

Thanks Chris - you like the same shades as me - glad my ‘pink’ border worked for you too 🙂.

I like the mixture in your third picture, but saying that I like all of your garden.

That’s good Daylily.

Ok Linda, thanks for the optimism🙂.

It all looks lovely Sheila, I enjoyed my wander, I think I'd enjoy a cuppa in the seating area as well please...LOL..

Come on round Lincs - there’s enough room for us to sit two metres apart!

Lovely array of plants! I have geranium Patrica it flowers well but every year something make holes in the leaves🤔

Your seating area looks very smart .
