Beautiful garden pictures Ian. It looks so perfectly natural as though it's been growing like that for centuries. Touch of an artist!

Perhaps we're older than you think, David!  ;)

Lovely views of the garden with all those Rhodos everywhere! An impressive Corydalis flexuosa bed also, when I think the two seedlings I had in both two different years never survived the winter here.

Ian can you send some rain my way? My troughs are very dry and I'm thinking I'll have to water them soon. I have miniature Hostas to plant but the mix in the troughs is very dry.

I decided that for my new bed in the back garden it will be bulbs, primroses and annuals only. Maybe some choice small Iris too. Since I sowed a mix of around 10 different annuals we have had no rain to get them growing.

We've set a fan blowing in your direction, Mark, but I'm not sure it's strong enough. :-\ ::)

Still very changeable weather here... Ian Christie reported a deluge earlier and there has been quite a lot of rain ( trying to be hail) here this afternoon.

Expecting Danish visitors tomorrow... it would be really nice if they got some warmth to enjoy the garden....... :)
