Garden at the beginning of May 2017

Bit late for the beginning of May! I took the pictures then didn’t get round to blogging. Until this last week the weather had been unseasonably dry, the water butt was heading for empty and the grass had stopped growing… 

Here we have the back garden with LO very busy getting on with some gardening.

The Aubrieta is almost over but was very pretty whilst it lasted.


The newly planted Lavender just beginning to flower. It loved the dry weather!

This border is done in purple and yellow- Physocarpus and Euonymus ‘Emerald and Gold’ plus Heuchera ‘Chocolate ruffles’. Oh and a mini wheelbarrow belonging to LO.


The Ceanothus is covered in flowers and that’s an allium beginning to open up just in front of it.

The Dicentra is just about over, but the Heuchera leaves are looking lovely in the sunshine.
