The P by the S

Hello

Thanks for popping in.

Meanwhile, back at the Park by the Shops,  the vegetation has shot up a couple of feet since our last visit two weeks ago, it must be all that good weather.  There was much to photograph including all the 'weeds' which, as the years go by, are rapidly becoming my favourite plants.  They are much more subtle, don't you think! 



The poor gardeners are busy planting the next lot of bedding, it's a never-ending job.    The begonias have been planted round the edge of the box hedging, some are still piled in the middle in their pots, and will be infilled by white and purple frilly flowers, that must be the technical term.  I'll show you those next time when they are in the ground!  You can see in the distance quite a few families out and about due to Half Term.


The light was great in the woods, despite being lunchtime.


Roses were cascading all the way over one of the rose arches, the others haven't quite got there yet and one has super-enormous red blooms and thin twiggy branches so I wonder if it will make it at all.



I'm pleased to say there were a brood of teeny Egyptian geese and some ducklings but still just the one swan, pulling his feathers out, it was boiling hot, and having a good stretch next to the flag irises. 

So far we have missed all the storms.


See you soon Park.

  1. Everywhere's so lush at the moment, we're having to cut the grass twice a week. We're due some rain tomorrow so that mixed with the sunshine we're getting means everything will put on a growth spurt again. Those roses are beautiful, it seems to be a good year for them. My Golden Wings rose is the best it's ever been this year.

    1. Our grass is getting out of control! It's wonderful to be able to enjoy all the flowers without them being damaged by the rain.

  2. Your park by the shops always look lovely. I hope the swan will be okay alone:)

    1. Poor old swan, so sad he hasn't got a family. Next week I'll show you another side to the Park! 😊

  3. That box hedging is looking healthy. The planting scheme will look lovely when it's complete. Your park must be a nice place to walk through with the different areas in it such as the woods and lake.

    1. It's a beautiful place, a jewel in the Council's crown. Box blight has been dreadful, even in Monty Don's garden, so they've been lucky to have missed it.
