Monday’s Meander Round the Garden


Today started off beautifully, warm and sunny. By two o’clock when I set off for a WI fundraising tea party it was positively hot (for Yorkshire, that is!) I didn’t even need a jacket with my new sleeveless red dress!

Being British weather, within a couple of hours it was heading down hill rapidly, I just managed to take these photos of the garden as the light was fading fast and just before the heavens opened!

We did have some good gardening weather over the weekend and I managed to fit quite a few hours in weeding my AA garden. I nearly filled our wheelie bin with weeds. Some of it was what I call cosmetic weeding, mainly marestail, I pull it up to keep the garden tidy, knowing full well it will grow straight back up again. The beds are looking a bit hacked at but at least you can see the paths now, just need to get some pathclear on the gravel to try and keep on top of the weeds.

Round by the pond I noticed a couple of candelabra primulas have come into flower, somehow it always surprises me just how tall these grow. The hostas are still looking good, the toads and frogs must be earning their keep!

The roses are starting to really come into flower now, Teasing Georgia, which climbs over the arch is looking pretty good at the moment. I love seeing roses climbing over structures, but I wish I was better at training and pruning them!

The clematis which has decided to climb up the bird table is just starting to come into flower, there’s lots of buds on it so hopefully next week there will be a photo of it in it’s full glory!


About craftycreeky

I live in a busy market town in Yorkshire with my husband, kids, dogs and chickens. I love trying new crafts, rediscovering old ones, gardening, walking...anything creative really I started this blog after my New Year resolution worked so well. My resolution (the first one I've ever kept!) was to post a photograph of my garden on Facebook every day. My hope was that I would then see what was good in the garden and not just weeds and work, which was my tendency. The unexpected side-effect was that I have enjoyed many more hours in the garden. I am hoping that 'The Crafty Creek' will have the same effect. Happy creating!

    It’s looking lovely! And you’re right about the heavens opening. I just got my patient through the door into A&E at BRI in time, another second and we’d have been soaked to the bone! I bet the plants loved it though!
