My garden is looking great and is transforming from it's blues era through to purples, pinks through to burgundy.
Just a few pictures to give you an idea.
I love to leave the pot of chives to flower. The bees literally make a bee-line for it and I could watch them for hours. I have chives dotted around my garden, particularly in 'Nell's' Sensory Garden which is full of plants for all one's senses.
One of my favourite geraniums. Once it has flowered I cut it back harshly and it grow and flowers its little heart out again later.
There were even more flowers on this stem of clematis but I couldn't get them all in.

This garden bed in two tiers I call my Aromatherapy Garden. Every single plant is aromatic, either the leaves, or flowers. If only you could smell it. I love nothing better than sitting on the raised bed and breathing in the wonderful perfumes and also every time I go past I just have to pull off a leaf of something and rub it in my hands to release the aroma. I have lots of plants around the garden that are there not just for their flower, but for their perfume.
I bought some white foxgloves last year - and they are just about to bloom and are all pink!
This little baby Rogisera (sp?) that I bought last year has grown into a lovely structural big plant this year.
I do not water my garden - and look what happens - I have a wonderful spike for the first time and do not have a clue what it will look like when it opens.
The grape vine has finally gone into leaf - it doesn't like the dry weather we have been having, but it is just managing to cast a shadow on the pation.
But the wonderful burgundy flowers of this clematis still show up against the pale green leaves of the vine
