In the garden...

This is my favourite spot in the garden right now.

And this...

... has been my favourite Foxglove in the garden this year!

A beauty!

A few weeks ago we made a new herbaceous border in the garden.

I hadn't expected it to happen but we needed

to get rid of an old woody hedge and an apple tree, which was

way past its sell by date.

I planted the border with a mixture of finds from my favourite nursery and

a few bits which I'd sown myself.

And now it's just starting to take shape.

I love pottering around in this little area right now!

I've been glad of the rain, just lately, to give these new additions

a good start to life in my garden.

Hope everyone has a lovely weekend!

Tomorrow, I am off on a jolly or two... but closer to home!!

I may have said it before, but I'll say it again - Your garden is beautiful! Love the foxgloves - I love anything spikey or spire-y, especially when it's in that sort of muted, under-stated colour! Dreamy!
