We took the unhappy acer out of the big pot in the middle and replaced it with a pink rhododendron from the front garden. The acer is now in a pot on our patio out of the bright sun and there is a purple rhododendron in the pot at the front which will work better with the pink azalea.
I've got a pink and purple variagated cordyline I need to plant up at the weekend. Just working my way through the pots which had Spring bulbs in so need to get those out, change the compost and add some Summer bedding plants :-)
The snapdragons are full of colour, really enjoying them :-) That part of the garden smells beautiful with lots of stocks and pinks.
On the other side of the garden this beautiful rose is full of scent too. I keep meaning to cut one of the flowers to have in a vase inside but I can't bring myself to do it. I'll just have to keep going outside to smell them lol
We've got lots of foxgloves flowering too in shades of pink and cream. I think I've got a yellow one starting soon but it's not opened yet so can't tell for sure
Some of the lupins are starting to go to seed, I guess I should probably deadhead them now as I'm not wanting to grow them from seed. They're really pretty though with their fluffy casings. You can see another flower already starting to form :-)
This lily continues to grow, it's about as tall as my petite 9 year old now! There's lots of buds growing ready to flower
I'm pleased with how my hanging basket has turned out too. Not too bad for a first attempt although should probably have put something more upright in the centre of the compost. Love the fuschias especially :-)
The chickens decided to put themselves down for a nap at lunchtime, they weren't too impressed at me disturbing them.
I'm looking forward to when they are big enough to roam around the garden rather than being confined to their run all the time. They have a big run though so it's not too bad as they're only babies still :-)
