Soggy Garden

Sorry I've been a bit absent recently for no particular reason other than the miserable weather.  Last weekend was spent in front of the TV watching the jubilee celebrations and since then it's felt so wintry that curling up on the sofa with some crochet or a book has been about all I've done!  If it brightens up any time soon I'll try to take some pictures of my latest blanket-to-be.  In the meantime here's some of the garden this evening, complete with raindrops!



In the greenhouse, the brassicas have all germinated but everything else has just stopped growing Not surprising when the temperature is about 12 degrees!




In the odd sunny spell I noticed the wild area looking lovely now all the ox-eye daisies are out and the bees keeping busy, especially on the philadelphus which smells gorgeous.




Here's hoping it brightens up soon!

  1. I think your garden looks beautiful all the time, despite this awful weather. I wish I had green fingers, or maybe it's a little patience I'm lacking!

  2. I must start by saying I am in love with your garden. What a beautiful space you have created. I am in my second year in to really getting excited about growing. Its a modest little patch but I have lots of ideas!

    I know what you mean about things not growing. Looking back on posts I did last year things were so in beautiful and in bloom about now. Although a lot of things look lush and green that is about it! lol.

    Will definately be visiting your gorgeous blog again for some lovely inspiration.

  3. Your garden looks lovely and so does your greenhouse. You've certainly been busy by the looks of it with all those plants just waiting to go in the ground. After today's heavy rain (again) our garden is looking very lush and green this evening - that's the only good thing about the rain it does green everything up after a dry spell. P x

  4. I love your ox-eye daises and nice to see you are using terracotta pots expensive but much nicer than plastic

    1. Yes I love my pots. A bit of a bargain from e-bay a few years ago. There's 6 boxes full of them, mostly old hand thrown ones. I like to imagine they came from an old walled garden or nursery somewhere!

  5. I love the flowers, so lovely. Here in Florida we are melting just like the Wicked Witch of the West, but we are melting from the humidity! I would love a cool day.

  7. I'm sorry your weather has been so rainy. Ours has too, but your garden is much farther along than mine as I have just been finishing up planting seeds. I love the pictures of your greenhouse .... do you keep yours heated with a special heating system?

    1. Hi Monica, I do have a little fan heater for the winter but packed it away some time ago. When the sun shines it can get very hot but there hasn't been enough of that lately! It's not helped by the neighbour's hedge that shades it in the afternoon :(

  9. I know exactly what you mean, sometimes I stand looking at my wee veg plot willing things to grow, hasn't worked yet.
    Your garden still looks great though :)

  13. What a tidy greenhouse you have there. The ox eye daisies are popping up all over at the moment we have roadside verges and roundabouts full of them and lovely they are.

    Now where is that sunshine?

  17. I must say your garden and greenhouse are looking mighty fine - you are just such a tidy gardener - my greenhouse looks like Steptoes Junk Yard compared to yours. I agree that the weather doesn't inspire me to go out much into the garden - too darned wet and cold for me.

  18. Wonderful pictures of your garden despite the rain! Everything looks lush and green, I wish we could have some more sunshine so I can get out in the garden to do some work and enjoy it. I love the picture of your daises.
