The Garden is Blooming!

We get sun, then we get rain, then we get sun, then rain – my garden is loving it! As regular readers will know, this is my first year where I’m really into my gardening and I’m appreciating every single flower that blooms out there – quite literally! I look out there every morning, searching about for new developments, and at the moment, they do seem to be coming daily.

Last year I fell in love with Alliums, and so I got a fair few bulbs and planted some up. I have really enjoyed watching them flower..

My mum bought me a peony for my birthday last summer, and I didn’t think it’d be in bud this year, and yet there are several buds on it..

A surprise poppy has appeared..

My herb patch is looking full of life..

The weigela is starting to take over a bed, but it is lovely, so I will let it!

I have aquilega that has self-seeded itself all over the place, and it is so pretty. It’ll be taking over the whole garden by next year, but I don’t mind!

My cut flower patch has got seedlings all over the place coming up – I cannot tell you how excited I am to see this area developing and growing!

I’m not too happy as some creature has been at my beloved roses, and has been chomping on the leaves. I don’t think it’s actually harming them, as they are all coming into bud, and I am feeding them well, but I don’t like to see it! At least my favourite, my Harlow Carr, is starting to flower..

It’s a great repeating rose, as it seems to come into bud every few weeks, and it is beautiful – one that I’d recommend everyone own! And then several of my others are in bud..

And my raspberries are very leafy now, the peas, carrots and radishes are starting to pop up, and Boo’s strawberry patch is looking very healthy, so I look forward to harvesting some home grown food soon.
