My happy place

at this time of year is my garden! I absolutely love it and spend as much time there as I can so I thought I'd share some of it.

 As you can see I like it FULL:)

 The ferns are particularly good this year

 There is a pond in there somewhere...honest:)

 Lilac trees and Aliums

 Bird bath and wine cooler (supermarket buy) water feature

 this Viola has flowered its little head an old enamel bowl

 first Foxglove open

 white Astrantia

 Iris....split a clump with a friend

 can't recall what this is called but I love the blobs!

 Echium.....fabulous colour that perfect ball

Lilac...wish you could smell it, it's gorgeous

 and finally...latest buy to use as planter!

Sue, I love seeing all your pics, it puts all the other little pics we've seen on facebook into place. Your garden is gorgeous and interesting, I like all your interesting plants. I'll have to take some pics in my garden too, but I'm doing a lot of veg this year so I've been very busy. Now I can sit back and watch it grow. Then eat it mmmm. Wish you could open your garden I'd love to walk around it. Michelle x
