Floral Abundance, Machete Soon Needed

 The heavy rainfall and the relative warmth of the season has meant that the plants in my garden have just grown with abundance.  The borders are full to the brim and I love it.  All the shapes, colours and perfumes are a delight so I thought I'd share a few with you

 The first year my poppy has flowered.  Parts of it look just like velvet.

 My alltime favourite rose - Jubilee Celebration, I bet David Austen's sold a few of those this year :)

 My astrantias, unassuming but so exquiste, think these are Roma.

 Just a rambler from the local DIY store, so clean, crisp and perfect.

 My long awaited peony, normally well over by this time in the year.

 Pretty ground cover with this hardy geranium.

 This wonderful dark leaved shrub is flowering, no idea what it is but I love it

 My varigated jasmine is in bud.
And I had to finish with another rose, this time St Swithun, softly perfumed.  Now I just need some warm days to get out there and enjoy the garden :)


  1. All your hard labour has certainly paid off, Shaz. Really terrific show you've got going on there. I can almost smell that St. Swithun's, it's just perfect. Well done you. I was going to post some floral pics too but not from my own garden!Have a good week.

  2. That poppy is gorgeous. I can hardly get down the garden path everything is overgrown since we went away only one week ago. It looks like a secret garden. I must take some pictures too before I have to get my machete out.

  3. Beautiful flowers Sharon - you like the same kind of garden as I do. The recent strong winds have blown lots of the taller plants down so they all need tying up now and the grass is like a jungle! Lovely roses and peonies :).
