I have been away.............

.... visiting Mum an Dad, and whilst I was there I couldn't resist taking some pictures of their early summer garden .... sigh..... its so beautiful, Mum has such a great eye for planting. The weather was lovely too whilst I was there so I managed to get some really great pictures, so without further ado and because its said that a picture paints a thousand words I won't twitter on anymore I will just show you!!




The 'sparrow' bath


The foxgloves are just finishing



Dad dapper in his hat



The new 'hot' area, all the planting is in 'hot, hot, hot' colours which will be out arund end July/August



Bailey wanted his photo taken too



Mum captured doing a little weeding around the rockery



Rusty bird



Morning Coffee corner



There is always something else to find




Looking down one side of the garden


Bonnie saying thankyou for visiting today - 'I hope you enjoyed your visit'
I have so many more I could share with you, but thought I ought to stop, I can always show some more if you would like?

What a gorgeous garden and I love the pictures of them working in it! I would love to see more! I am going to steal their idea of the pots on was it wooden stakes or metal? I love that!!! I love the sparrow bath and well, the whole thing. I really would love to see more! Glad you had a wonderful visit.
