Summer Monday!


It has been another glorious day weather wise today and it was the same at the weekend too.  Our Friends’ daughter got married on Saturday and it all went off very well.  DH, Youngest and I were stuck at the swimming pool all day for the Open for the younger swimmers.  It was a great event and the swimmers really enjoyed themselves although we were all melting as it was very hot!!!



As Sunday was good weather too DH and I continued the sorting out of our garden.  We planted the Mock Orange at the front of the border and the rose, Mortimer Sackler, arrived on Friday so we got that put in too.  It has some buds on and I will show you a picture when they open.

The flowers are starting to open and the Bees are loving them.


We got the Boys Den tidy and cleaned it inside and out and the windows!  We are planning later in the year to stain the wood again, before winter.


You can’t see this tree very clearly but we trimmed a few of the branches which were hanging down.


We also got this bed sorted.  We need to trim the Box in the left of the picture but we think a Dunnock may be nesting in there so are leaving it until later in the year.


I am so pleased with everything we have done over the past few weeks.  There are one or two more jobs to do but nothing big.  We have some dates coming up where friends are coming for dinner so I am hoping that the good weather holds and we are able to eat outside.

Treacle spent all day outside with us and was so tired last night, as she had had no sleep all day, that she was solid gone in her basket by 8.00pm!

I spent this morning running errands and working this afternoon.  Tomorrow it is my good friend, Jayne, her Birthday so am seeing her in the morning and then we are going out to lunch next week, as our Birthdays are a week apart.

I hope you are having a great Monday and have a wonderful week.

Hugs, Susie xx

    Your garden is looking beautiful! I love English gardens – they are so eclectic, with a surprise around every corner! Formal gardens are lovely, but a bit boring! My mom’s roses – red, yellow, cream and white – are blooming beautifully this year so I guess I did an adequate job of pruning them last autumn (even though I know I’m supposed to do it in early spring). Enjoying summer weather here too!
