The view I'm loving....

Is from my tiny kitchen patio.......viewing the top of my garden.......where our unseasonably warm weather......has everything growing in leaps and bounds......even without any rain!!
I love the view even complete with washing line [moved while OH mowed the grass] and compost bag.

And as it spreads out towards the patio and summerhouse.
I love roses....and have them dotted around the garden.
including this yellow one that we 'rescued' when we first moved in........which now flowers profusely...but sadly has only one flush of flowers.

The pink climbing rose is covered in buds....and a very few are starting to open.

The deep claret....slightly out of control.......climbing rose......is shooting for the sky.......and needs 'persuading' back down to earth!  

The oriental poppies are beginning to open.......

and behind them.......the shocking pink daisies are all opening.......sadly these tend to look a right old mess once they've finished flowering.
 The beautiful pink peony is all set to open up.
 The spring flowering clematis is rampant!!
and the summer flowering ones........are just starting to open a few of  their buds.
How does your garden grow???

Jacky, what a gorgeous garden you have. Love the summer house too. Well, I will be back to a few dead/dying planters on the balcony soon, although I did manage to keep a beautiful deep red hibiscus going for a while there. But its topping 40 degrees C now, and the leaves are going yellow. Bet you're sorry you asked. (Fluffy and Snowy would rather like to run through your garden too!). x

Jacky your garden is really lovely - can you come over here and fix up mine?
What do you do in the summerhouse?

Right now my garden is a muddy mess! I have my annuals bought and are sitting on the deck waiting for the ground to dry up a bit so I can plant them. The perennials are trying to bloom but the weather has been cold and raining for the past week. Maybe next week????

You have a gorgeous garden Jacky, so long too!! Love those beautiful roses, they certainly do look cared for. My garden is a mess at the minute, squirt thinks he owns it!!

Love your garden...I love roses too! My garden is just beginning to get 'past it's best', as the heat of the summer makes itself felt-it's hard work keeping it going June through to September!

Wow - gorgeous! We haven't really planted our annual yet, but the perennials are doing okay. Right now my view is of a very skillful man cutting down one of the huge trees which has blocked our view forever. I'll be happy it's gone, but it's sortof sad, too.

And a lovely view it is! Your flowers are gorgeous. My garden grows due to my husband's green thumb and love of digging in the dirt ;)

When I see gardens like yours I really wish I inherited my grandfather's green thumb... But I did not and so typically I plant the minimal amount of annuals, which will happen in the next couple weeks. I love Begonias and dahlias, but your roses look smashing as well!
