sunday morning in the garden
I would like to say thank you to all of you who commented on my garden.
May be because this year we had a lot colder and longer winter the we normally have in this part of England and the plants could go into a proper hibernation, and due to a long warm and sunny weather he have been enjoying so far, all the garden is looking good. There were some casualties of the last winter, the biggest was our fig tree. It is a something we have got use to. We live quite high up, with open fields at the back of the garden and lovely views, but that is at a price. We get high winds here, mainly in the autumn and winter.
We also have a quite high rainfall here, that is why everything is so green. Ideal conditions for the local dairy industry, most of the fields around here are for grazing.
Some of the roses no longer have names, they have been with us so long, even moved house some 16 years ago, like this one.
The poppies have now opened too, they look very fragile, as if they were made out of a tissue paper.
When I walked around the garden this morning, I managed to take a picture of a blue tit feeding his young.
