🎶Chain saws to the right of me, house renovations to the left – stuck in the middle with you!🎶
It’s been a noisy week. One neighbour has been having trees cut down and the stumps removed. The other neighbour has recently moved in and is fully renovating the house and garden. The upside is that we will get more light in the garden and less leaf fall onto our plot in the autumn.
Starting this week with the view of the front rose which I have trailing along the porch. Nestled in the decorative watering can above the hanging basket, a robin has made its nest. I’m hoping that the rose will protect the nest from the marauding magpies.
Second photo is of a pot of mixed coloured dwarf dahlias. I’ve planted the whole packet and have more seedlings coming through in stages. They were great germinators on the conservatory windowsill. The dwarf size appeals to me as hopefully they won’t need staking.
The next photo is of the delicious scented Honeysuckle. It always makes me think of my Gran who liked Honeysuckle but always claimed that it gave her hay-fever.
Fourth photo is of the everlasting Geraniums which are just coming into flower. I have planted cuttings of these elsewhere around the garden as they seem happy growing in these soils.
The next photo is of the super strength Harebells that are elbowing their way out of the swamp of the Kolkwitzia which is threatening their existence. I have taken a cutting of the Harebells and planted it elsewhere in the garden and the Kolkwitzia (thank you Harriet for naming this plant) will be getting a haircut after it finishes flowering.
Final photo this week goes to this Sweet William grown from a cutting. I shall take more cuttings as this was a success.
