Another week of sunshine and rain, sometimes a lot more rain than sunshine! However I feel I must stop moaning about the rain as I have noticed that all my surviving rhododendrons are literally covered with luscious, fat, juicy flower buds, all ready for next spring! Next spring should be a bumper year for flowers on the rhododendron bushes as long as we don’t get a drought and then they would abort them all. Usually I am having to fling buckets of water onto my rhododendrons to try and save the buds, but no need to this year, thanks to all our rain over the past six weeks or so.
My six are as follows……..
We have had lots of rain overnight and I think we are in for a very wet day today, thank goodness I took my photos yesterday while the weather was behaving itself! My Canadian visitors have now gone but they did find the lily that they sent me a few years ago and were pleased to see that it was still flowering.
Thanks to Jim once again at Garden Ruminations for organising us all, if you want to see gardens from around the world, then do pay him a visit.
