Finally the summer holidays are here. I know I have been on holiday recently, but the past two weeks have been hectic at work; as is always the case that the end of a school year. I have worked extra hours and my routine at home has well and truly been thrown out! So over the next few days I plan to tidy and clean the house and garden.
I started yesterday with trimming some plants and sweeping the patio - it needed it as the day before I had picked 20lbs/9kgs of Old English Lavender from my allotment and sorted it into bunches on my patio.
I have cut and edged the lawn.
And have been enjoying being in the garden.
The buds on my White Agapanthus are starting to open.
One of the Sunflowers is bringing a much needed splash of sunniness into the garden.
The Astilbes have been enjoying all the rain that we have had.
My Geoff Hamilton Rose is in full bloom again.
I just wish that I had planted it nearer the patio edge so that I could smell it and not in the middle of the flower bed.
My three Buddleias are attracting lots of butterflies.
Yesterday afternoon I even gave Mini a wash and valet!
Now what am I going to do with the next six weeks?! :)
Wishing you all wonderful summer holidays, Pj xx
