Everything is coming up roses

Hello!

Haven't been here for a while - busy with a succession of staying guests. My youngest son is now in working in England for 4-5 weeks - only forty miles away from here, so we will be seeing him most weekends.

I've been trying to keep on top of the gardening - early mornings and late evenings as we have had a spell of hot weather, with which I find it difficult to cope. Too hot to sleep! Here are a few pics of the garden, which will be at its best later this month.

Top tip from Monty Dom on Gardeners World - still time to carry out the Chelsea crop if you are quick. It will result in more prolific flowering of certain perennials later in the summer. I tried it on my plox yesterday. Find out more - Gardeners World

  2. Welcome back! Your garden is gorgeous, especially the roses. I'm so impressed! That's a lot of space, I don't know how you can take care of that many plants. Have a great week!
