bank holiday weekend

lovely to sit in the garden on a holiday monday, here's Daisy enjoying the sun.
columbines are self seeding everywhere, love the pink
love this one with its shades of purple and white
and this one. . .
and this one....
and this one....

I very nearly weeded this verbascum out, it has a base of flat leaves and I wasn't sure what they were.
some appeared on the other side of the garden too, glad the weeding doesn't get done too often!
bees love this centaurea montana-one of the cormflower family, its a fabulous colour , and thanks to Keith for the correct name and information on this one!
and those lovely furry poppy heads burst into big blousy orange poppys.

internet on!!

gardening going on! imagine this bed, beetroot, parsnips, sweet corn. . . I can see it in my minds eye. . .
rhododendron, flowering away
this azalea just flowered too, its gets better every year this one.
and the rhubarb survived, I still haven't tasted any on if yet.
and the poppies just before they burst into flower. . . . .
