Since my spring update of the garden back in March, I haven’t posted much about the state of my garden. Which is a shame really as I do love gardening. So now is the time to update!
One of the things I have managed to sort out are my hanging baskets and I also got some bedding plants that were on offer at B&Q. I love buying plants from our local one as there is so much of a variety.
I also cheated with the hanging baskets and got a pack of plants that were carefully selected for a hanging basket and also had instructions on the side of where to plant each plant in the hanging basket. Hopefully by following the technique, I will get a stunning display with my hanging baskets this year!
I had emptied a few pots out by placing the plants already in them into the ground, so decided to put the bedding plants into them rather than into the ground. The problem with planting them into the ground is that I have a rabbit that is keen to eat any edible plants…and he also likes to dig where I have done as it’s all nice and soft for him…..he is a lazy thing.
Alot of my flowers are in bloom now and we are gaining immense pleasure from them. Flowers can just uplift the soul with their beautiful colours….although Bee is a bit of a vandal and has been pulling some of the flowers off.
Your garden is looking wonderful! Ours is less “pretty” but we have potatoes, beans and raspberries growing – can’t wait!

You have some lovely flowers here, I especially like the purple flowers (sorry I’m no good with flower names) I love walking past a house that has beautiful flowers surrounding it, there is always this lovely smell walking past too x

Your garden looks beautiful. Lots of lovely bright colours. I love the roses, my favourite flower!
What a beautiful garden. I got my first hanging basket and am growing flowers from seed – they seem a bit high though. Wish it was as colourful and bright as yours.

Some beautiful flowers. I’m absolutely no good at gardening and we are still sorting out the jungle the previous tenants left, but spotted what I think is a poppy growing in the garden which I’m so happy about!
Your flowers look great. Your fuchsia bush is gorgeous. I only have plants in my front garden because the dog would dig them up otherwise!
You have a beautiful garden. I have cheated this year and have artificial hanging baskets lol
so pretty and colourful… wonderful!
We had most of the flowers “eaten” by a pup during last few weeks 🙁
Your garden looks absolutely stunning! Such pretty colours.
Your garden looks lovely – I really must put some effort into mine!
Lovely pictures and lovely flowers. #HDYGG x

What a lot of different blooms in your garden! You are so right, flowers do life the spirits and bring a smile to faces. This is such a lovely time of the year, I for one am soaking up the colour before winter comes again!
Thanks ever so much for joining in and sharing lovely x
These plants are beautiful – I love the reds and purples that you have chosen.
It’s such a nice time of the year with everything coming into flower. I have the same Clematis as you, ‘Nelly Moser’. But my favourite at this time of the year are delphiniums.
Hanging baskets are so great! Thanks for giving me a good idea!
