Today I enjoyed some gorgeous weather, it was sunny, warm and just lovely. I got some gardening done and it was a pleasure to be outdoors again in the sun, long may it last.
The bed that I put into the middle of my lawn, the one that looks like a whale which you can see on a recent post moved onto stage 2 today. I added a rose arch and a rose and clematis to climb over the arch. I didn't spend much on the arch though, they range in price from £9.99 to £200 so it is hard to know if you are getting value for money. I went, not for the absolute cheapest, but a relatively cheap one all the same at £25. It looks nice and I am looking forward to seeing flowers hanging from it.
Rather like the bed, it looks a little random at the moment, but you have to imagine it with flowers dripping from it and the bed with some tall plants and flowers seperating the two halves of grass.
The rose is a Phyllis Bide, pale pink, and the clematis is a Perle d'azur - sky blue. Both planted. Let the growing commence.
