You have beautiful flowers as usual, Claire!

But french? Really? Isn't that Spanish lavender? No expert here.

Wildside, we call it french lavender, I prefer english lavender though, it smells better.
Lowa, thankyou!

Glads are a glorious flower. Don't you love the colors? Ours aren't standing up quite as well as last year, and are not as tall (last year some were taller than Ross!). Perhaps all the wet weather last summer gave them stronger stems.
Teddy (I think?) is looking very clean and handsome. Love the snazzy boots!
Bees are so photogenic :)
Lovely photos Claire!

Kerri, all my gladioli are 'spare' ones from a lady across the road, her garden is stunning just now with all her colours.
