Love it all but particular liking for that very pretty flowery mug!! Enjoy your day! Cx
So beautiful all your flowers are...We have a little bit of green weeds popping up, which are so exciting to see, Have a wonderful weekend!
Hi Gill,What a great garden you have! It looks huge!! You look very relaxed sitting outside with your legs up ;-)!Have a great new week!Lieve groet, Madelief x
HI Gill, your garden looks lovely, especially those beautiful gold tulips. Been in my garden today too but digging a ton of earth, just to move it 30 feet. I've got muscles I didn't know I had!Have a great evening.Lesleyx
I'm just catching up on your posts, Gill. First of all, happy belated birthday to Bella, 16 is such an important birthday. My son was 16 in February and we've got GCSEs coming up soon too. I'd love to know how you get Bella to do her revision, I've given up trying to reason and left him to it. I've just shown Bella's birthday cake to my daughter and she's requested one just like it for her thirteenth birthday in July. I think I might give it a go before then though, it looks delicious and we're big fans of chocolate cake in our house. Your garden is looking lovely, it seems you've landed on your feet. You never really know your garden until you've lived with it for a year, but it's certainly doing well so far. I had lots of honesty last year but didn't sow any seeds as I thought the plants I had would self seed, but they didn't. I'll have to sow some more ready for next year as they're such lovely flowers.
Just fab, love that shot through the covered walkway. So romantic!Lisa x
OOoo I so love visiting your garden, Gill! It is so full of colour. I lost interest in my (very large) garden a couple of years ago after being an avid gardener. I don't know why really, I found it too much to deal with and was fighting a losing battle with ground elder, couch grass and mice and pheasants eating all the bulbs. But I feel inspired by you to start planting and to bring some colour back in. Thank you xx
You have a lovely garden beautiful photo's ,dee x
What a gorgous garden, such pretty photo's x Leah
Lovely! - thanks for sharing. Abby x
Wow! What a lot of beautiful flowers! I love this time of year :)
Thank you for your comment - we have been rather busy over the past week! Your garden photos are wonderful. Our garden looks a bit like an unmanageable jungle at the moment! We have a small garden but it seems that when we go away even for a short time that the grass and weeds grow very quick indeed! When we got home today at 6.00 p.m. I did think of mowing the lawn but my heart really wasn't in it and I bet it will now rain tomorrow!June.
What a lovely garden pics! Thanks for showing them!
Who needs words when you have got beautiful pictures like that. I love your garden.Lou xxx
It looks so relaxing, what a beautiful garden!!Chris :o)
What a stunning mass of blossom and colour you have. I can't imagine you spend much time indoors at the moment. The previous owners have certainly left you with some super plants. Most I recognise, some I have, but what is the splendid yellow flowering plant? Not the marsh marigolds by the pond, but the pic above your painted toes! I'm guessing it's some sort of flowering alpine? Enjoy more sunshiney garden time today, Gill.Becky x
Thanks for the lovely comments everyone - we are indeed lucky that the previous owners planted so many pretty spring flowers.The mass of bright yellow flowers I believe are Alyssum saxatile - the brightness of the yellow is unbelievable, almost an acid yellow.It is not a large garden at all, but is quite wide and square (compared to our previous one) so that might make it look generous. It certainly feels big enough when you're out in it and see all the work to be done! And theres me putting my feet up ;0 - my excuse was it was too hot to work in it!Spent most of Sunday in the greenhouse though, potting on hollyhocks and cornflowers and sowing more veg seed (urged on by hubby!)Windier and fresher here today,with the sun in and out, but next few days are supposed to be hot!Hope its dry where you are!Gill x
A beautiful selection of flowers..... ciao Alison
P.s That little green table looks too good to be out in the garden.......I would bring it in....shabby style ciao Alison
Alison, you're right about the table, it needs to come back indoors - for years it was our kitchen table, but then we needed a larger one and it got relegated outdoors for the guinea pig cage to sit on! Yuck!! So it was outdoors for a few years, then last year we moved and it just got stuck outside again! We did scrub and repaint the top, but it needs attention again.
What a lovely garden you have Gill, I really love the shady bit with the pergola.Those tulips are divine. Thankyou so much for your kind comments, you are right, it is much better knowing what the problem is. The pain is under control now thankfully.Thanks again, love Linda x
Oh, you are lucky to have such a lovely garden.x

Thanks for visiting and for taking the time to leave a comment - I love to read them!Gill x
