  1. So all those apart from the roses are self-sown are they? Lucky you! Actually, some of my best plants are volunteers, presumably brought in by the birds. I don't often BUY flowers!

    1. I did sow seeds or plant some to start with though, Mark and now they just pop up without my help.

  2. Aren't Antirrhinums wonderful Sue, and even better when they're for free. I love the gorgeous colour of that rose (8th photo). Do you know what variety it is? I'm on the lookout for more pink roses for my garden.

    1. It's a shrub rose Paula called Baroness Rothschild and is scented. I'm not sure I would recommend it though as it doesn't seem to be very strong growing and is prone to blackspot

  3. I love that really pale yellow rose. So simple yet so pretty. I'd love to grow something like that but I just don't have anywhere for it.

    1. The pale yellow rose is a shrub rose called Golden Wings, Jo. It's really strong growing and very fragrant.

    2. Thank you for the information, Sue. I've jotted the name down as I really do like it, it looks a little like a wild rose. I'm putting my thinking cap on to see if I can squeeze one in somewhere.

  5. Beautiful flowers and how wonderful to capture that beautiful bee. They are only just making their way to my garden so a little concerned about the reports of the depleting numbers. Take care. Chel x

    1. The bee was having a siesta , Chel and so keeping quite still and making photography fairly easy. Unlike to ones whizzing in and out of foxgloves

    1. The first flower is an annual candytuft, (Iberis umbellata) Linda and is in various shades of purple and white. It is really easy to grow.

    1. You'll have to do a blog post about where you have got with the bee plot, Tanya. Are you taking photos of your progress?
