The beautiful kitchen garden at Chatsworth
Pictures, rather than words today. I wish I could grow huge rows of SLUG-FREE Delphiniums here!
Achillea looks wonderful en masse like this.
Love in a Mist - Nigella sativa.
Drifts of Campanula.
I think this is Variegata di Bologna rather than Rosa Mundi.
A pretty unnamed rambler.
Camera shake, but it looks rather nice like this . . .
Almost black sweet peas.
Then finally, it was on the bus back home, with Sheffield in the distance . . .

All my potted roses enjoying the sunshine there now. I did a bit of "sweeping under the carpet" on that left wall as where there was some loose sand left that was hard to shovel up, I just swept it against the wall, put compost on top and planted it with (on left) scented leaf Geraniums, and further in, several pots of Dahlias which needed to get in the soil. Now I am totally shattered . . .
