I'm just loving the garden right now. It's full to the brim with pretty, romantic flowers. Lots of the perennials and shrubs I've planted in previous years are now growing together, which looks natural and also means less weeding! These days I love sitting outside under the umbrella with a book. I start off reading but usually end up looking around and making garden plans!
Clockwise from top left: gladioli nanus, Cecile Brunner rose, pink rippled carnation, Ash Wednesday rose, delphiniums, peace rose, rhodohypoxis, blue aquilegia, gladioli nanus, pink peony, hot pink geraniums, lavender. Middle: lavatera with a cloud of gypsophila in the background.
I'm also happy to report that I've joined the summer-flowering hellebore club! Only one of my plants (Pink Lady) is doing this, but the flowers are normal sized and just as lovely as in winter.
I'm linking up to Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day at May Dreams Gardens. Who else has hellebores flowering in their garden right now?
