Well we have had a few dribbles  of rain this morning and a small shower last night. Not enough for the dry garden that's outside! But then after having gorgeous days it's hard to get back to dreary days isn't it. Everywhere and everyone look so well in the sunshine. But still the garden keeps on giving.....

This is Rosa'For your eyes only' a gorgeous rose which changes colour as the flowers go over. Not bad for a Lidl purchase  

I tidied up my Tree fern yesterday  taking off all the dead fronds and ones that were ripped to shreds by the Winter winds  

Astrantia 'Hadspens Blood' is starting to flower now  this is a deep deep red Astrantia which I bought in Johnstown a couple of years back.  Really vivid  

Hope the weather doesn't stop us gardening  have a great day!

We had only a few drops as well, Jackie. Great photos.

Pouring here in Waterford all day. The Tree Fern is looking great after the winter and that Rose is just gorgeous.

Well after E;izabeth's rain dance no wonder we are all drenched here-but grateful. That rose is unbelievable. Is there a grey tinge in the leaf as well?

Thanks Sean, Mary and Peter. 

No Peter I think that's just the light reflections. It's a peachy colour with a darker middle. But then when it is aging the colour fades but it's still beautiful. Lashing all evening but so needed!!
