Despite all of this the garden is doing well. The new dahlias I bought in the spring from Rose Cottage Plants have been flowering for weeks and weeks now.

|Dahlia Waltzing Mathilda|
|Dahlia Classic Poeme|
|Rosa Scepter'd Isle|
|Clematis Gypsy Queen|
Those of you who follow me on twitter might have seen that I was quite incensed the other week when a non-gardening colleague of mine described my garden as 'over-grown'. I suppose to the untrained eye it might appear that way, but I prefer to think of it as abundant and flowing!
Anyway, whatever it is, I like it :-)
