Montana Rubens I think.
The president start of more to come as it flowers prolifically.
A shady corner.
A lovely new cherry tree which sadly lost all its flowers after this was taken and doesn't look at all well despite giving it plenty of water in the dry spell we had.
I even weeded the central path and dusted with sand to try to keep further weeds growing.
Another weeded bed this time I use grit to help keep weeds down, in a few weeks the cistus and sage should be flowering.
A sunny day early in May gives a promise of things to come. I am so pleased with the box although it will soon need clipping.
The back terrace shame about the water butt but it is so useful for rain water which has been diverted into it.
My faithful companion or garden wrecker depending on my mood - Meg.
Clematis Elsa Spath in a sunny position in the front garden
The president clematis again in the back, I had not realised how similar they look but it may just be the photos because the eye picks up blue/purple differently than the camera. I love them both though.
Another glimpse of my new cherry before it looked sick.
Choisya a couple of years ago it was covered in Rose chaffer beetles and although I have already seen a number I have not seen quite the numbers of a couple of years ago
My vegetable beds.
A final glimpse of my tidy path after the rain.
