The daisies are adoorable

Marjolein said...

Gorgeous!

Pat said...

Naomi:I can never have too many roses. I know what you mean about time. I can't believe it's Friday already.

Rog: you couldn't resist that could you:)

Marjolein: they've been a long time coming this year.

Exile on Pain Street said...

Look at that...life!

(It's me. UB. I'm toying with my site.)

Pat said...

Exile: glad you warned me I'll pop over later.

John Greenwood said...

Our climbing rose is laden with blooms, but the ones in the rosebed are quite late! Photos on mine later! x

Pat said...

John: I look forward to it:)

Mike and Ann said...

Pat, your garden looks stunning (as usual). I think your roses are a good ten days ahead of ours.

LL Cool Joe said...

Everything looks so green. You don't need words when your photos are this beautiful!

This really makes me want to have more flowers in my garden, those yellow roses are perfect - do you mow them right back in the winter - apparently that is the key...

Gadjo Dilo said...

Nice iron boot-scraper you appear to have there. I've been trying to get one, but it's the sort of thing that never turns up in junk shops as there's always a genuine and pressing need to scrape yer boots over here.

Pat said...

Mike and Ann: unlike yours my aquilegia were rubbish this year.

Joey: that's kind:)

ALW: we do prune them in the autumn but also when I deadhead(a favourite occupation) I cut right back to the next nodule - it encourages growth.
I love learning language nuances; we prune roses and mow lawns. What do you do with lawns in N.Z./U.S.A.?

Gadjo: its as old as the house - 1924. It's never I used as - in these parts we tend to enter the back way- except for her Maj of course:)

Granny Annie said...

Sweet sweet blossoms from a sweet sweet lady.

Chef Files said...

Without a doubt, the yellow rose is symbolic and very precious. I'd go so far as to suggest that particular bloom gets a lot of love lavished upon it by a certain young lady who wears her heart on her sleeve.

Keep the faith.

Pat said...

Granny Annie; you say the sweetest things:)

Chef: I will.

Kim Ayres said...

Good to see the roses out - of course they still have a way to go up here, although I did see a bud for one out on my walk this morning. Maybe in a couple of weeks :)

Kevin Musgrove said...

I envy you the little Erigerons on the doorstep.

Pat said...

Kim: I always remember the gorgeous blue poppies I saw in Oban. Do you have any?

Kevin: they are a joy - pop up everywhere and no work involved.

Kim Ayres said...

We did have a couple of blue poppies in the garden about 7 years ago. I'm not entirely sure what happened, but I think the poppies got dug up by mistake one winter and we've not had any in the garden since

Pat said...

Kim: they obviously feel at home in Scotland and look amazing.

Guyana-Gyal said...

Glorious. I'm going to wear perfume before I visit your blog, Pat, so when I look at the garden photos, I'll pretend I'm smelling the flowers.

Pat said...

GG: garden fragrances don't seem to be as strong these days. The bay and jasmine are two good ones here.

GYPSYWOMAN said...

incredibly beautiful...magazine picture perfect!

Pat said...

Gypsy: thank you:)
