Thank you so much

Dear all,

I can't believe how many comments I've had, and such nice ones too! I'm really looking forward to carrying on with this and showing more of my garden. I can't believe so many people have found me already!

The weather has been beautiful here, apart from some rain last night (the garden was pleased even if the cats were not! Dougal in particular looked like a drowned rat bless him.

I can't resist some more photo's of the garden so here we go!!!

Foxgloves are one of my MANY favourites plus the tall Verbena Bonari-sommink or other!!

Sarah likes red Geraniums so here is one for her!

And then there is the mystery one. I have no idea what this is called, it comes in pink too but its pretty! I got it on a market stall in Leeds about 8 years ago when Mr Long Suffering Mother and I went to visit daughter no.1 who studied there. If anyone can tell me what it is I'd be very pleased!

Well that's all from me for today, thanks again to all you lovely commenters I really appreciate the support I hope you come back soon, I'm sure I'll be along to visit you all too!

I'm a fellow hater of tea and lover of coffee. Your flower is a cistus ladanifer I think, there are lots of named varieties so I can't get nearer than that.

I love foxgloves too - such beautiful blooms on them, and the bees think they are heaven. Although at the moment it's so wet everything in the garden is getting blown to pieces!

Beautiful geraniums - such a lovely colour. If we had indoor space to keep them over-winter I would, but sadly we don't :(

Hi Mary,
Just back from Queensland and found you via Sarah. That plant is a Rock Rose. We had both colours in the front until the drought. The garden looks really lovely. I am so looking forward to sitting in it soon.

I just love Foxgloves. A special memory from my child hood with a special Uncle.
I think we call those flowers Dietes here in Australia-do they grow in a clump, a litte like an Iris? I really like the, have been wanting some for our garden- if the Vandal permits!! LOL.
