Summer in my English Garden



June is the time for roses and this year has been especially good for roses in my garden.  Sadly I can't remember all the names, but you know what they say 'a rose by any other name would smell as sweet' so I'll just leave you with the pictures and you can name them yourself, as I did.

I would call the first one 'Maiden's blush'

and the second one 'Fire of London'


no. 3 I would call 'Snow on the mountain'


and no. 4 'Amongst the buttercups'


No. 5 would be 'Folded tissue paper'



and No. 6 I would call 'Strawberry sherbert'


Would you like to have a go? Tell me what you would call them?

We need some rain. I have been out watering every other day for a week or two and the plants needed it because it has been hot, hot, hot. Thankfully today, we have cooler weather but there are thunder-storms about for the next few days.

With luck we shall have fresh peas for dinner on Sunday - the first of the crop. I can't wait!

I hope everything in your garden is growing well?

Spring has arrived in my garden - at last!


It's so nice to have a lovely sunny day after the long winter and the flowers in my garden thought so too!




It will be Easter very soon and there will be other jobs to do as well as gardening, like making some of these:


and visiting the bluebell wood.


Whatever you are doing, enjoy your time with family and friends.

Happy Easter!
