After days and days of rain,
the sun has finally appeared
and it is gloriously hot. Yesterday it was 27'C!
I have been busy in the garden hanging out the baskets
and planting up the patio pots.
I'm not the only one who has been busy!!
The Aquilegias are flowering. Such pretty colours!
The garden is alive with bees.
I've tried to photo the different types, but they move so fast from flower to flower!
The bees also love the Hardy Geraniums.
The Alliums are beginning to bloom this week.
As are the Bearded Irises.
The Viburnums are putting on a show
each side of the garden
and Niobe is in full flower by the patio.
Other flowers aren't so showy, but I love this Tellima Grandiflora that has seeded itself throughout the garden
and the Dicentra Alba.
Maurice sat on the fence watching me take these photos,
but he is in my bad books today as he killed a squirrel and carried it indoors!! Poor squirrel. :(
