What a week – temperatures soared to over 20 degrees every day and no rain since last Saturday! I spoke too soon about our rainy Irish weather – I hate having to water plants – they get a good soaking at planting out time and then are left to get on with it, but all of the pots need watered frequently.
Plant wise the aquilegias are amazing, the rugosa roses are starting to open, the peonies are teasing us and taking forever to open, the hesperis smells superb, the nepeta is soldiering on, the alliums are still doing their thing – my favourite, allium roseum are just starting to flower.
The evenings have been amazing – the birdsong alone makes it worth staying outside for, and the bumblebees seem to find it too hot at midday – they seem far busier in the evenings.
A busy few days ahead – tomorrow an all day workshop, Sunday a TV crew from Holland are coming to film the garden and Monday I have a garden group visiting in the afternoon…am heading back out now but promise and update with pics asap!
