Sweet Summer Days...

The summer has arrived...

We have a new garden arch ...bargain half price jobby that I have painted... just waiting for something pretty to threadle itself upon it.

Tilly chilling...... watching the bees...

Roses are smiling...

The Peonies are looking blousey...
The garden has sprung into life...

Now as the heat of the day fades...

I sit down with one of these...and drink in the sounds and scents of a warm July day, surrounded by a little bit of magic

  4. Isnt it wonderful how some sunshine can lift your spirits Thea? My garden is really full of beautiful flowers, in fact if anything they have put on too much growth and are flopping everywhere! Its a hive of activity for the birds and bees, still no butterflies though yet, I havent seen many yet this year. Have a lovely weekend.

  13. Isn't this weather amazing, Thea? We've waited a long, long time for this ...

    Enjoy your garden, it's fabulous, I've been spending loads of time in mine ... the housework is going to have to wait, I'm afraid!

    Sunny smiles

  15. I think England and Canada have traded "normal" summers this year! We've been deep in dark clouds and rain (although still hot and humid!), and you have clear sunny skies! Your garden flowers are amazing Thea ... especially love the second photo down of your beautiful rose :) I would love to spend a day in your garden just drinking in the sights (and maybe a glass of whatever you've got there too!). Enjoy the rest of your week. Wendy x

  16. Beautiful roses and peonies! Your garden is truly lovely. Best wishes, Pj x
