I hope you have all had a good week and are enjoying the weekend.
I was over at my dad's yesterday and took photos of the garden and also managed to get two videos. One is of Polly doing zoomies and the other of Albe playing fetch with me. I'll get the videos downloaded and then on here in the next few days.
In the meantime here is dad's garden.
A stone trough with small Conifers. Four of the Conifers were planted in this year, as the others had died. The one at the front hanging down is the only original left.
Small Cherry Tree now showing open blossom.
Think these are some sort of Narcissus.
Not sure on everything that's in this corner of the garden. Bottom left is a new Foxglove planted within the last couple of weeks. The taller plant next to it I think is a Hydrangea.
This corner has an old Lilac, which is just showing leaf. On the left there is a Climbing Rose and an ordinary Rose. These were both planted last year. The old Plum Tree (with the green netting on it) is now used for a Passion Flower. Dad's not sure if it has survived, as there's no shoots yet.
The Apple Tree showing leaves.
This is a Peony.
The Roses I mention earlier. This year will be the first time they flower.
Cycleman. Two on the right have lovely little flowers and the plants have grown. The one on the right isn't so happy.
This is a new plant that dad put in on Friday. Don't know what it is.
This is the trunk of the old Willow. The Willow died, but dad left the trunk to put climbers up it. There are two Honeysuckles going up it. The one on the right dad only put in last week.
Don't know what this shrub is, but the yellow pompoms are lovely.
A Climbing Rose dad put in last year. There's another one going up the other side of the arch.
Dad loves pottering in his garden. He does have a gardener coming in once a week to mow the lawns, cut the edges keep the hedges cut and any other more manual work. Considering my dad will be 88 this September, he does well to put the plants in and potter like he does.
Hope you've enjoyed the little tour round the garden.
You all take care.
