The death of a Queen, the accession of a new King and a new Prime Minister has made this the most extraordinary of weeks. And after weeks of dry weather and warm sunshine the arrival of gales and storms, heavy rain and blustery showers has made it a very difficult week to get outside and into the garden. However on Friday the sun shone more or less all day so I was able to take a few photos and also dig out more of that bamboo! Two huge clumps removed and one slightly smaller one left to do. Because the soil has been thoroughly soaked it seemed easier to use a fork to get into the clumps. Easier, but by no means easy…
As most of the flowers in the garden have been viewed before, this week I am going to show you a few of the views I have of the garden along with a few favourite plants that are flowering now. Please click on the images to enlarge.
Apologies for the rather blurred photos, the wind hasn’t stopped all week!
As always, if you want a peek over other people’s garden walls then please pop over to our host, the lovely Jon, AKA ‘The Propagator’ where you find links to many more wonderful garden enthusiasts from all over the world.
It is lovely to see the views of the garden! That yellow Clematis is lovely!
The yellow clematis has been flowering for months! Whereas the purple one next to it has done nothing at all.
Oh you are lucky! I have one Clematis plant (the common one) which is not doing well at all!
I seem to have a hit and miss rate with clematis. Even when they are planted close to one another, one fails, one grows! I do need to feed them in the spring which I forget to do.
Id better go and feed my Clematis then……I don’t remember to do that either!
I think long shots of the garden should be compulsory at least once a month from every participant. Lovely photos of a refreshed garden. Do be careful digging if your back is still a bit iffy.
A good idea! The Prop used to do a border patrol so we got to see his garden regularly, but he is obviously addicted to the running now. I always like to see a shot of a garden to see how all the plants fit in.
What a stunning garden!!!
Yes, that certainly was the week that was! Good luck with the garden. Some lovely pics. I like bamboo too but it does get carried away!
The bamboo is gone now after a mammoth effort – though I did spot some coming through the other side of the fence today. Sigh…
Those roots don’t care about boundaries!
Hopefully I can just keep cutting those shoots down so they don’t take off.
