The flower garden now has two lengthened beds.
this is the first one and Paul's now done the one diagonally opposite.
This bed was easiest to do next due to not being so full of weeds and grass. It has quite a few groundcover plants under the shrubs at the back.
The tree peony in the other beds is having it's best year so far, with lots of lovely blooms.
A close up
We put in this tangerine Ranunculus to link to the Geum in the opposite flower bed.

Some ground cover along the raised side back border.
Very pretty blue flowers similar to forget me knots.
The stone trough below the folly window has been replanted with the hope these we actually not vanish like all the previous plants we've tried here.
inside the folly
Pleased with how this area is working.
The Rhubarb is coming along nicely in it's pot.
We planted up the wall and hanging baskets.
We lost a few large shrubs this winter but other plants appear to have enjoyed the cold spell followed by all the rain and are doing well.
It was the King's coronation on Saturday, so we had a small celebration lunch with our close friends on Sunday, which turned out to be the best day weather wise for the long weekend.
So it's carrying on with the change in the flower garden this week, weather permitting.
