This beautiful pink Jasmine is just starting to flower. Unfortunately it is against an old part of the fencing which will need to be changed in the autumn. I am hoping that we can cut it back and safely move it about six foot over to the left! So hope we do not lose it!.

Here is a close up of the flowers.

In flower now is our neighbours mock orange which has a lovely scent. against it you can see a red rose what was in the garden when we came here.

From this angle you can see on the right another of our Jasmine's that is not yet in flower.

This David Austin rose called the Rambling Rector is in full flower above the shrubs.

 A beautiful and reliable Rose called A Shropshire Lad .

Here we have the lovely rose Blush Nosette which we uprooted and brought with us from our last house.

It always give a fabulous display in the flower garden beside the arched gateway.

The Delphiniums are looking majestic in their blue spires.

In the front garden the pink Valerian at the front is mixing with the red and white Campion and the yellow Daisy and grey and pink lambs tongue to the side, very Christopher Lloyd!!

The gorgeous colour of the rose Lark Ascending .

Paul is very pleased to see that his Ensete Maurelii ( Abyssinian Banana ) is looking nice and healthy and thickening up..

The beautifully scented rose The Lady Emma Hamilton in the island bed in the front garden.

The blooms fade to pink .

Now here Paul and I disagree, Paul says this is the rose Tea Clipper , I say not as Tea Clipper should be a pale  tea colour  hence the name but knowing Paul he is probably right!!

Well today is turning out to be another of sunshine and showers but there are pots to be filled and weeds to be removed, so it's back to work!.



  1. Loving all this....... and learning so much.
    Will hopefully comment again after this busy week has passed.

    1. We just love sharing these gorgeous flowers.

  2. Very nice photos, I love the Jasmine. We have a white Jasmine here but I think it might be a different type to yours as ours is rather stringy and rambling, not full and thick like yours....and currently ours has no flowers!!!! I think it is being taken over by the Bouganvillia!!

    1. Thanks Sharon,the jasmine is quite old now about 7 years we have a white one also and that's not flowered yet either.
      Your Bouganvillia is gorgeous such a beautiful colour
