In between the rain

May so far has been more like March and April together. The winds have been gale like and iv even seen large hailstones hitting the earth! In between the rain i have managed to capture some flowers there will be more to come..

My next door neighbour has a wonderful garden and we are often swapping plants, seeds and advice. Here, i was kindly given a beautiful Ladies bonnet flower, which i have had my eye on for a number of years and keep praying that the seeds would somehow find their way into my garden, but sadly not as yet, and Carolle was so kind in letting me have this one, i will save the seeds and scatter for next year. Yay!!
Mmmmm, French Lavender, i do have some Lavender growing from seed that i planted in March, but i really wanted some of this French Lavender, so pretty..

I love Daisy flowers, they always remind me of a Country cottage and so i have made sure i have planted plenty.

Not sure of the name of this amazing little blue flower, but i do think its a wild flower, kindly given to me again by Carolle, a few years ago and used to be at the bottom wild part of the garden and this spring i moved to the top of the garden and its doing really well..
The garden seems to be doing well so far, the runner beans are starting to flower and i even have a resident blackbird building her nest in the Elder at the bottom of the garden, how blessed am i?.. The Sunflowers that i grew from the bird seed are also doing well, that great in fact iv had to put them into the garden and i pray each night it stays mild. The Blueberry bush is providing some flowers and the Strawberries are going made, there will be photos of these soon.. In the meantime enjoy you Sunday, wherever you are..
