Old, unknown variety, Iris Siberica nestles in with Clematis Montana Broughton Star,
Rosa Charles De Mills hangs over from the back of the bed, wafting its delightful scent into the path.
Red Valarium grows amongst self seeded aquilegia and through the blue potato vine (solanum crispum)
and Oriental poppy Patty's Plum has opened in all her glory.
The Cornus Sousa is spectacular this year (even if it is about 6 feet above my head!)
and the frogs are often found having a group sun bathe on the rocks around the pond.
This robin has been following me around as I weed
and the Generous Gardener Rose has almost covered the arch by the back door.
I really love this time of year in the garden, even if though the flipping slugs do keep eating my plants!
