Sunny/rainy Sunday

We had our usual breakfast in bed this morning, but melon for a change. Stripped the bed, sheets etc now dancing on the line, We keep getting dark clouds scudding over, a few drops of rain and then the sun comes out, weird.

Emptied the bulb containers, the bulbs are drying off in the grow house, the spent compost is on the herbaceous bed.

Pictures taken this morning.

The bottom of the herbaceous bed, you can just see the orange lily behind the geraniums

The thing that looks like a palm is a lily, the roses are coming out on the arch, hope they will climb a bit more for next summer.

Looking up towards the white foxglove, you can see the peach roses on the other side of the arch, the remains of the lupins in the background. DB trying to look as if he is not there.

The Comtesse de Bouchard seems to really like this corner, it is smothered in flowers.

Not sure which Clematis this is. update, my friend in the US thinks it might be Niobe, she could be right!!

Or this one for that matter.

Geraniums and petunias just coming out. The large pot in the background id the one we bought for a pond in a pot, need to source a solar fountain for it.

This is the side of the house between us and Mary, ideal for a nursery bed, and at the top behind the gale, storage for the wheelbarrow and trolly.

The geraniums are out in the pot by the front door, the fuchsias are swingtime, just starting to trail down the pot, they are red and cream when they come out lots of buds but none broken yet.

The lavender is flowering along the side of the front path. We are going to train it into a low hedge.

DB working hard, weeding the bed.

This is a tiny campanula, it is so pretty, masking a hosta and also a hydrangea. I have a white  campanula called 'white chips' to put in. There is another blue one at the base of the left hand side of the arch.

The sun is out again, I need to go and check the laundry, some of it should be dry enough to iron, not that I am going to do it today.

Supper is prepped, pork and roasties, carrot, cauliflower and peas. I have made a rhubarb and blackberry crumble for dessert. I still have blackberries in the freezer from last year, need to use them up.

I broke my fabric fast last night, found some really pretty fabric on ebay, all fat quarters, some of it is winging its way to me as I write.

DB has gone for his siesta, so I guess I will read for a while once he comes through.
