We have had two weeks of rain, but up until last weekend the temperatures remained warm, so everything is growing very fast. Here are a few general views of the garden including the wild flowers under the olives – I just love poppies; where the soil was dug to plant daffodils, there are now poppies!
Poppies under the olives
Island beds looking like Beth Chatto's gravel garden
Looking from the opposite direction - the dry island
Rosa Rimosa 79 climbing the pillars of the pergola at the front of the house
Rosa Clair Matin on west side of the house
Yellow Hemerocallus have begun flowering
Also flowering is Sambucus dark purple, cut leaved, I think it's called Black Lace.
