my garden.....


....is just starting to look a picture!  The azalea is the best that is has ever been although I'm not entirely sure I like it's brashness (but my husband does so it has to stay...for now).  My herb box is looking very happy and healthy. My mint, which I only bought today at the bootsale, along with the pail, is planted and ready to grow and grow...ahh the smell!  I'm rather pleased with myself as it usually takes me a least a week from purchase to plant on. 
The red rose againt the blue shed is thriving too with more amd more buds ready to burst open.

I'm not a fan of yellow roses but this one is looking stunning.  It opens as a buttercup yellow and ends as a primrose yellow....beautiful.
 

and the apple tree just pictured behind has at least 20 tiny apples appearing...last year we had none.

Another rose bud peeking through. I've just spotted some greenfly on these...little blighters.
I've had a wonderful weekend in the garden.  My nails are full of good healthy dirt (is there such a thing?) because I can't bear to wear gloves. I'd better get them scrubbed and perfectly clean for tomorrow's work with all those lovely mannequin fabrics.
Hope your weekend has been great too, Lucyxx

Lucy you garden looks gorgeous, I love the red roses and the pail you got for your mint.

I too like to get my hands in the mud without gloves, I just love the feel of it, maybe we have farmer genes in our heritage :o) xx

Such a lovely garden- how do you find the time?
I love the feel of earth too, which says something for the state of my nails :(
Ted likes brash coloured flowers, he's always saying "more colour more colour" after I've worked everything carefully in lush green foliage and white flowers!
Time now to SIT BACK and enjoy it
xx

whats happened to the weather??? Don't want to sit in my garden now I'd be drenched in a few minutes (and it's cold!). Never mind...pop the kettle on.....

Heavenly - those yellow roses are very similar to mine. Check out my first blog giveaway on my blog and see the resemblance! What do you mean by brash azaleas? They are gorgeous! Gardens are a boon to the spirit.

I like that red rose against the backdrop of the blue shed. Perfect for a garden paint. I too don't like yellow roses. I prefer the red ones. Just always wash your hands thoroughly after every garden chores.
