God Save the Queen

Thank's Lizzy for letting us have a day off work on Monday. I've got a school excursion tomorrow, so pretty low key, and then 3 days off, AND reports are finished!!!!

Psychotic 13 year old son going away for the weekend, so even more promising to
be a peaceful time. At this stage he's having trouble packing his bags and that always makes me nervous that maybe he won't go.Last weekend Mr Flowergarden installed this lovely garden arch that he designed and built (he's a welder by trade) at a freind's house. I took the opportunity to take some lovely shots of her garden at the same time. Can you imagine this in a year or so with a beauiful rose and a clematis rambling over the top.
I just loved the bird in her garden.

That trellis will be spectacular when it is filled in with flowers. It looks wonderful as it is. Have a great weekend.

Lovely arch- I have a couple for some roses. It is amazing just how quickly the roses will cover them once they are established. Have you tried a Paul's Himalayan rambling rose to make a tree hedge more interesting and scented?

Have a good weekend.
