Wowww....the woods over there are so beautiful! The weather must be fine for the flowers to grow so well.... (over here, it's 35 celcius, and I'm sweating even in my air-conditioned room ;-))

You must come and visit, Doctor :-)

Calfy said...

Doctor! Congratulations :-)
Bluebells still out up here. Smell heavenly.

Trubes said...

All looks lovely Lils, Pig is a lucky dawgie to have so much open countryside to dash around in.

Di.x

The woods really are beautiful at Rosings at this time of year.

Gorgeous garden. Please visit me and wave green thumb.

Fab pics Lilith. Nice to see the sun shining for you. It is a race between me and the slugs up here. Bought things to plant weeks ago, but the weather has not been very clement. Won't be anything left to plant if I don't get a move on soon.

I'd like that very much, Lilith! :-)

Thanks Calfy :-) I can't even imagine how bluebells smell... :-)

electro-kevin said...

Nice.

Why the gate ? Are you scared that you might be invaded by gnomes ?

How lovely! Pig looks soo happy running around the garden/giant woods!!! I wish I were as free as a pig-dog to roam the country. But here I am in the office, pretending to do some work...

Daisy said...

absolutely lovely...i felt at peace just browsing your garden...ahhhh

Tuscan Tony said...

Ah, after the last post ones eyes can readjust to some real English beauties.

Well done Lils, looks even more lovely than last year.

Lils, your garden looks great as it always seems to!

I'm sure I've mentioned this, but having to bend less there, must make things so much easier!

And you seem to get the sun at the best time!

Bluebells = best year as far as we're concerned too! (well stamped on by JRT and I suspect Pig as well...)!

lilith said...

You are all very kind. There is much yet to explode in our patch of dirt and clay...

Scrobs it doesn't work like that, because your feet are always at a crazy angle making it hard to remain in balance. The thought of landing on all that concrete keeps us mostly upright. We get sun all afternoon and early evening in the summer.

Kev, the gate was for Pig the puppy to discourage trampling/defiling the flowers but he is over it in one swift bounce these days. It gives the cats more time to get away.

That is what it is for Daisy :-)

The slugs are getting a zero tolerance policy round her Fuchsia. They have still made shocking inroads at times. The lettuces are 4ft off the ground.

Pip, sounds fun. Elby is about to have more surgery though! This time a bionic shoulder.

Mermin! Trubes! Hellooo! Pig is so at home in the woods. It is a shame Merms that you have to be in the big city. Not a lot of fecund watery woodland about :-(

lilith said...

TT, ahem, yes, posting Caroline was bad of me.

Calfy said...

Pippy lives in a Jane Austen novel?! One of my friends lives at Bag End.

Hi Lilith and co,

I forgot to say thanks for dropping by, so thanks, you are always welcome. I was tempted to use your avatar for Debbie, PA to Mr Screwtape, wasn't sure about the response though:-)

Beautiful pictures of the garden, I have let mine go to the proverbial 'rack & ruin', it has seen better times but seeing your photos I am almost enthused enough to get the flamethrower out.

lilith said...

Bob, you are most welcome. I love the site. I think the image you eventually chose is perfect.
