Don has a new toy - a new ride-on mower complete with trailer. Today he drove up to the old dairy and brought down two trailer loads of composted manure - straw/goat poo/cow poo. Very old and powdery. I've gone for broke and put it on a section of the garden where the plants are not thriving. Will either kill them or cure them.
Now a change from roses. Each morning I am greeted by these cheeky , happy little faces. Love the colours and they are so easy to grow.
Aren't the purple and orange ones delightful. I must get some more; they look lovely in terracotta pots
Out the front the Dutch iris are flowering. They look very dramatic against the willow trees. I have a bright yellow one as well, but it's noy flowering yet. I must get the blue. Love that deep colour.
These little perennials look pretty together - Cerastium and Nepeta.
Another pretty spot at the moment is around the sun dial - Thymes and mini Agapanthas. It looks a bit scruffy because I snapped this before the new mower arrived. But I like the casual look.
