Flowers & Doggies!

Good Morning!
As you can probably guess by the title of today's post the topic is pretty self explanatory lol I thought I would share some photo's I took of the garden last week along with some cheeky one's of my dogs thrown in. However after the strong winds and rain we had yesterday some of these plants aren't looking to good. In fact the rose petals have all blown off! I despair with the British weather sometimes ....

The Morning Glory climber at the bottom of the garden finally started flowering last week.


One of my Agapanthus is starting to flower.


The said rose in question that has unfortunately been blasted by the wind! Incase you want to know the name of the rose it is 'Peace'. How ironic?! lol


My Grandad sent me some Hellebores as he knew I was debating getting some later in the year, hopefully they'l appreciate the shade behind the greenhouse until Winter!


Another Delphinium has opened in my border, this time a gorgeous purple one!


In the greenhouse the Basil & Parsley is coming along with some of the Winter Bedding.



My tomatoes are ripening and I even got to try one from the bush variety, Maskota. Which was delight in itself as it was my first ever home grown tomato grown by myself! 


I also decided to seperate my Sweat Peas when cutting them. Pastels /Purples in the bedroom and Pinks in the living room! lol


Lastly here's a few shots of the doggies as promised, Hollie sitting watching me in the Greenhouse and Millie looking up from the sofa wanting her tea! lol



Thanks for popping by, I'l be back tomorrow with a card for the new PTW Challenge!
HAPPY CRAFTING!
