After a very wet week we had some beautiful weather yesterday. I was able to get out into the garden and do a bit of work. These pictures were taken in the part of our garden nearest to the house, it's all looking very colourful.
This rose is growing in some very poor soil at the side of our garage. I'd forgotten that it is a miniature climbing rose, it's never done very well but this year it has really put on some growth, I think it liked the cold winter we had. Next to it is a honeysuckle and that is looking very healthy too. I've almost removed this honeysuckle several times because it always looked very scrawny, the cold winter suited it too.
