The garden looked beautiful in the sunshine today. I took these photographs.

We have successfully grown this clematis up the trellis in the front bed. Over the last five years, we have had several unsuccessful attempts to grow climbing roses, clematis, honeysuckle, but all of them died. This year I watered regularly and fed with a good quality fertiliser. The flowers are huge and amazing.

We returned from a trip to Edinburgh, visiting the family and were greeted with these fantastic poppies
