Lots of sun and lots of rain make the garden grow.

On Tuesday we had a wonderful day. We had the guest house full, and were able to take the chance of a full day's walk. We went up Wetherlam- here's the view from the top on Tuesday.

Yesterday we had torrential rain all day. Today is warm, damp, and perfect for slugs.
The Phlox is looking great and the scent is wonderful. The Bay tree is almost back to normal.
The philadelphus looks sad, as I got carried away with the pruning, but I'm sure it will be fine.
The tubs are in dire need of a serious deadhead and feed- job for later if it keeps dry.

Here's hoping all of you are enjoying your gardens right now in what we laughingly call "high Summer", ie about 17 degrees, sun, rain, wind, whatever !
Did you know you can buy great gardening guides for your Kindle? I've now got my Kindle, and am a convert!
