Windy colours in the garden .

11 comments


It is SO blustery out there again today so I took a few pictures in case everything blows away!

I tried to find you as much colour as I could.

Hope you all have your wind breaks up!

Lots of colours and looking up and around lots of greens!

Hoping for a much calmer day tomorrow for us all.

How did you manage to get the plants to stay still enough to photograph, Wildrose?
That is a beautiful cottage garden you have there with lovely gentle colours. The greens are restful, aren't they? It's difficult to recreate your garden's 'atmosphere' on an estate, but we keep trying! It's lovely to have pics. like this to help us while we miss out on garden visiting this year.

Your garden looks beautiful, love the pond tucked away to the side too looks much better than mine with all the wind and rain we're currently experiencing.

well definitely a garden of colour and gosh hasn't it been windy.
I had to come in from the greenhouse as twigs were blowing off the beech tree and if it dropped a limb I'd be in serious trouble.

I love your garden Chris ! Everything looks so healthy too and a lot of your plants are much further ahead than mine !
I love that white daisy bush. What is it ?

It's all looking beautiful,Chris,and is looking much further on than mine too ! So many Roses in flower,which are so pretty.,and the Red Pelargoniums are bright and cheery .It was very wild here as well,so we didn't venture out at all,except to feed the birds..still very windy this morning,but glad we had a little rain overnight,which is badly needed.

Thanks for sharing, Chris! You have an abundance of fantastic flowering plants! Everything looks so pristine and immaculate despite these dreadful winds..
I can’t decide which one I like best, they are all so very vivid and eye catching!
Your lawn looks so verdant, very smart. The last pic of the hostas, very lush..

They all seem to have survived the wind well - a very pretty collection! Aren't we lucky in in this country to have so many greens. I used to enjoy doing arrangements using only leaves - its surprising how attractive they can be. the wind here has been ferocious but doesn't seem tohave done any damage which is quite surprising really! anyone else had damage?

The winds don't show up on your photos, every bloom is perfect :)
It's calmer today, and warmer too …

So much colour, you've certainly got rainbow fingers rather than green ones 😊

Dear All,
Thank you for your very kind comments. It was a much nicer day today wasn't it - dare I say it.....almost too hot for gardening!!!
This lovely weather has helped the days go by I think.
