It's time for this month's round up of photos, again, no particular theme here.
A stone lion at Harlow Carr. Two lions guard six Doric columns which were originally from the Cheltenham Spa Rooms in Harrogate and were donated to Harlow Carr by the Yorkshire Archaeological Society in the 1960's. This is the site where the main entrance to the gardens used to be.
There are a few willow sculptures around Harlow Carr, I believe this is a dragon.
The view from my bedroom window. I love this time of year when I can open the windows and get the scent of lilac wafting in.
Waiting for a poppy bud to open. I think poppies are so tactile, right from the time their hairy buds appear right through to the time their crinkly, papery petals unfurl.
I bought this geum - Koi last year. It's a dwarf variety, perfect for my border, and has the most striking orange-red flowers.
Borders at York Museum Gardens. I can't make my mind up about the heuchera, I have dark varieties in my garden, I'm not sure about the lighter varieties.
Poppy bud starting to open.
Peaches on my little peach tree. I'm sure lots of them will drop, the tree isn't large enough to support much fruit. I just hope that some make it to maturity.
Lily of the valley. I wish it would spread a little, though I don't want it to become a thug as it does in some gardens.
The poppy as it is today, almost fully open.
I hope you've enjoyed this month's selection of photos.
Sock Knitting Tips - I often get comments on my sock posts from people who would love to knit socks themselves but haven't yet given it a go, or from people who are too nervous...
