Well we have sunny and hot weather here.  Not sure how long it's supposed to last, but they are saying tomorrow will be the hottest day of the year so far.

Took these photos in dad's garden yesterday.

The plants below are Crane's Head Geraniums.  They are called this as their flower heads resemble a Crane's head. 


Can't remember what this one is.

Lilac.  The scent when the sun hits it is just beautiful.

 Peony.  This is taking ages to open.

Dr. Ruppel Clematis

 Crystal Fountain Clematis


Although Polly did lay out in the garden a fair bit, this was her in the afternoon:)

Albe was fast asleep.

Albe squinting in the sun.

Hope you all have a fab Friday and a lovely weekend.

Don't forget to hug your hound/s.

    I think the one you can't remember is osteospernum - does it close up at night?

  2. So far, it's been a great Friday! Your dad's garden is gorgeous! Our peonies always take forever to open, too. It's good to see Polly and Albe!

  3. Beautiful flowers. You'll have to keep us updated with the peony - they are so spectacular when open.
    I'm no help with the daisy-like flower
    "you know the one that looks a bit like a crazy purple daisy..."
    Sadly that is the extent of my knowledge.
    Monty Don needn't worry about me pinching his job any time soon!
    Have a lovely weekend

  4. I like the peaceful music in the blog which goes with the peaceful flowers and the very peaceful dogs. Sets a great mood!

  5. Taffy's Mum, You are right.

    houndstooth, Glad you've had a great Friday.

    Laura, I will take photos of the Peony when it is out.

    Hazel, Glad you like the music tracks.

    1. Love your clematis. That's my favorite plant. I'm planting several varieties now and can't want to see what they do.

  6. Gary, Dad's got four in the garden now, although two aren't looking so good. hope yours all thrive.
