Summer came today - Hear its going again tonight.!

What a fab day - Started the day with a coffee sitting down at the end of the back garden in the sun planning what to do today!! Extended all the borders by about 6". Hubby making snide remarks about having no lawn left soon!!  Must have neglected to tell him of masterplan. Oops!!

Finally planted my Japanese snowball - Lovely.  Cut lumps (well all the lower branches) off the strawberry tree. Discovered later - totally wrong time of the year but hey- had to be done!!!!  Had half the border in shadow and this is the really sunny-side. 

Tied up and staked lads of stuff.  Not nearly as many weeds in the back as was in the front. Edgings weren't - so to speak- totally overgrown. All lovely now.

It is still a beautiful evening !!! Maybe they will be wrong - Hope it is good next Saturday- Off to Blooms!!!

Maybe the annoying rain has us washed out out of it enough now.Apart from just a small shower in the afternoon,i fully agree,summer was in the air today.

They say we wouldn't appreciate the weather as much if it wasn't lousy most of the time but I think I would. Love the sun - long may it last, Maybe see you at Bloom, Jim & Marie.
