My Garden in July

I have been really enjoying pottering about in the garden this summer. The work that I began last year is bearing fruit, as I have splashes of colour all around me, and more importantly I feel, I have scents wafting at me from all directions. Here’s a little peek at what’s happening out there at the moment…

My sweet peas are doing really well – I’ve cut loads of them this month..

My cut flower patch is looking rather lush! I’m getting fresh flowers from it all of the time now, which is exactly what I’d hoped for.

As I wrote about last month, I’m still in the midst of scribbling furiously away in my gardening journal, noting down changes I want to make come autumn when I can move things around more freely. And I might have just ordered some new plants, too (*whistles innocently*). OK, but I clearly needed a winter-flowering honeysuckle, and it was at a bargain price, and I needed a fair few bulbs ready for spring, I fell totally in love with a peony called ‘Sorbet’, and I obviously had to make my front bit of garden into something of a rose garden…didn’t I? Actually, I’ve never shared my front garden – it should be called small area, really, not garden as it’s merely a bed underneath my window, but I figure it’s a good space for The Fairy rose, so I’ve ordered 3 in different colours and I cannot wait! I’ll update you, of course, when everything arrives…

Until then, how’s your garden growing?
