When I was a little child, I always wanted to live in a cottage in the country with a horse, a dog and cats. I tried to get a horse - and failed. The same can be said about a dog. But we've always had cats, and we moved to a cottage in the country 10 years ago. There is barely a week that goes by, when I don't look outside and think that we are lucky. I am so glad we have been able to bring up our son in such surroundings.
In my childhood dream, my cottage had roses round the front door. Pink, of course.
And this is what I have grown. I love walking up the path when the rose and clematis are in flower.
Having taken this photo, I thought I'd have a wonder around to see what else was looking good today.
The apple tree and shrub have created and archway at the door of the greenhouse.
(Please ignore the junk outside!)
The bees were out in force at lunchtime.
And a little butterfly.
Thanks for stopping by. I have enjoyed sharing the garden with you.
