Just before I water my tomatoes I think I’ll put my feet up and soak up the beauty of the Oval Bed.
But I can’t stay seated for long – hummingbird hawk moths are visiting the Centranthus!
The evening light is lovely for taking photos.
So now I must get that watering done!
It’s beautiful Cathy. I don’t think I would get much watering done with a view like that 😉
Thanks Judith. I find it hard to sit still in the garden though, and rarely manage more than a few minutes before finding something to do – a weed here, some deadheading there… ! LOL!
A gardener’s work is never done! Thanks for taking a moment to share the beauty with us. 🙂
😃 It’s after 9pm and I just remembered I need to cover up my cabbages! (to protect them from the hares!) Have a good weekend Eliza!
Ha, there it is, proof positive. 😉
Thanks, and same to you.
Garden looks great, Enjoy. Every time I sit in the garden I think..I should do this more often.
Same here. 😜
Gosh your garden is really coming together and maturing nicely now! It must be very satisfying, and of course grasses are perfect for evening summer light.
Thanks Sel. Yes, my garden makes me happy. 😃
Your garden has really taken off. I am the same and always find something that needs to be done.
If I want a rest outside I sit away from the garden and enjoy the view across the fields instead! 😉
It looks like a lovely place to sit and put your feet up, even if just for a few minutes. Your gardens have filled out so nicely. Your hard work and watering has paid off.
Thanks Cindy. I don’t need to water the garden beds, so it is only the tomatoes that are in tubs under cover thank goodness. And sometimes the veg beds. But we have had plenty of rain so far this year anyway! 😃
How lovely Cathy – and an evening stroll around the garden at this time of year is so rewarding (even with the watering)
It is very relaxing once the heat of the day is over to just wander around. 😃
No real heat here yet, just mild with hazy sunshine, but we are due HOT on Friday! I was awake early this morning though and had an early walk around the garden along with some ironing and making a cake, all before I was due to go out swimming!
Best to use the early hours at this time of year! That heat is coming our way too. 33°C is forecast. Yukk!
Here too… bleh…
But the opposite today!
All your hard work has paid off I am glad you can stop now and then, and recharge Have a wonderful weekend.
Thanks Eunice! Have a good week!
Surgery done yesterday now to read and enjoy the gardens
Wishing you a speedy recovery and hope it was a success! 😊🤗🍉
I see doc on Tuesday for follow-up then pt and laser treatments I hope so too thank you.
What a gorgeous place to put your feet up – if only for a minute! Watering would not seem like a chore amongst such beauty. And your hummingbird hawk moth is amazing – it really does look like its namesake!
I am so glad the hawk moth has found its way into my garden. I planted the Centranthus with them in mind. 😃
Just as you can’t stay seated for long, you probably also can’t stay sated for long.
Seated is harder. And after a night of heavy rain the garden is saturated.
What a gorgeous place to celebrate life!
Thank you! It is!
What a lovely view. I never seem to sit in my garden. I really should make time to, simply to enjoy it. And I ought to look out for the hummingbird hawk moths too, I have Centranthus!
Oh yes, they love Centranthus, and that is why I planted some here. I think many gardeners find it hard to sit in their gardens without working. If I want to relax we have some chairs out the back facing the countryside instead!
What a beautiful garden! It must have taken a lot of effort to grow it. Super cool!
Thank you Angie! Yes, hard work but very much worth it. 😃
Your oval bed is shaping up beautifully. Amelia
Thanks Amelia. It’s a bit bare in winter, but is now looking much fuller! 😃
A lovely garden you have created, Cathy! Enjoy each moment.
Thank you Susie! The last few days I have finally caught up and have been enjoying the garden more than ever! 😃
Your garden is such a source of peace and pleasure. Your hard work and planning really created a beautiful garden, Cathy.
Thank you Debra. It really does bring me pleasure. 😃🦋🐝
What a fantastic garden! AND – last night I dreamt that I came to visit you and your garden!!!!! How extraordinary is that! 🙂 🙂 ❤
Wow! Well, you are welcome any time Sandra! 😉 Does scones and homemade strawberry jam sound good? 😃
Thank you. 🙂 Sounds wonderfully delicious!
