My Summer 2014

It all started really well, my garden was beginning to look good, flowers flowering, roses budding, and the tortoise warming up nicely.  I have even grown tomatoes in special tomato grow-bags which have done what they were meant to – so exciting picking tomatoes from my own plants! 512 more words

Three beauties from David Austin...

Another flush of roses, possibly the last of the summer and for that, very much appreciated and admired. Many of the David Austin flock will have begun flowering in late May, this year at least, and will still have an abundant show left in them before the needs for a little quiet-time assert themselves and they settle down for a winter nap. 702 more words

General Comment

Spring is nigh!

It’s pouring with rain outside but that’s good because my garden needs it before the onslaught of summer.

We have had some chilly winter mornings but it is surprising how much gardening can be achieved in winter. 141 more words
