The sunny weather has continued (bliss) although this morning is cool and cloudy. Don't think we have any rain in prospect though - the garden is desperate to guzzle some up and I would like a rest from watering round every day!
Tam was here for the weekend and we all went to Carmarthen Fleamarket yesterday and found some odds and sods worth having. I may just have found some Victorian horse brasses at the right price. I will share them when they are polished up. Keith enjoyed the day out, but of course it was in the mid 70's heat-wise so we both got a bit dehydrated, despite having drinks with us. It was a struggle getting into the car as underfoot in the car park it is rough stone chippings which Keith finds it very hard to balance on. I will have to park in a smoother area next time.
Those yew hedges in all their glory.
This is Iris "Red Ember" though the marker called it "Red Amber". I would love some of these.
I saw these red thistles in a couple of the displays at Chelsea Flower Show, which I watched avidly.
Cirsium rivulare purpureum. . . . Note to self!!
Gloire de Dijon growing up pillars either side of the doors into the Orangery. Beautiful, but no perfume.
