"Daisy, Daisy.."

The big daisies have decided to come out and play in our back garden.  Here's a photo of  it in all its glory.


I adore mixed herbaceous perennial borders.  Cottage gardens are labour intensive and quintessentially English.  

I love them and would not have any other kind of garden.  Especially when virtually every plant was propagated by cuttings and division by yours truly and quite a lot of help from Mother Nature.  Isn't it a fantastic Summer for flowers?  

A nice garden doesn't need to cost a lot of money.  All it needs is interest and a plant collecting and propagating for an hobby.

    Ended up watching 5 hours of Wimbledon but did see the end of the cricket. So long since I've seen cricket! Well done England!!

    1. Thanks LA. The cricket was an emotional roller coaster. Never seen anything like it. Englands luck prevailed. Great advert for the game.

  9. Sorry I don not understand your language. Could you translate to English please? Many thanks for your interest in my blog. You're obviously a keen gardener like myself. Do you grow perennials or just vegetables?
