It can't have escaped anyone's notice that it's Jubilee celebrations this weekend. We're doing our bit and flying the flag in honour of Her Majesty. I hadn't noticed until I took the photo how the house looks as though it's being swallowed by the jungle of clematis and hydrangeas!
'He who gardens' has grown a patriotic red, white and blue scheme of Petunias for the chimney pots outside my studio door.
If the weather co-operates they'll soon fill the pots and be lovely all through the summer!
We've even had a stab at a vaguely flag-shaped arrangement in one of the beds. It'll look OK when the plants cover all that bare earth!
It offends me slightly that the Royal blue Petunias are more than a little violet but nature can't always be relied on can it?
I'll finish with a fun shot especially for Pam who says she enjoys seeing our wildlife! This little frog wouldn't co-operate either - he had to be rescued from a hot greenhouse but he was far too lively to be photographed without a careful restraining hand. I got a quick picture before he jumped off to the cool shade of the shrubbery!
If you have celebrations planned this weekend like we do I hope the rain holds off and you have lots of fun.
Thanks for dropping by - I'll be back again soon - Linda
