I'm early with this month's round up of photos but I won't be around at the end of July so here's the photos I've taken this month which haven't yet made it on to the blog.
This is the second year I've had my Golden Wings rose and it's absolutely fabulous this year, lots of blooms and the perfume is beautiful.
A few more photos from our visit to Harlow Carr earlier this month. I can't resist taking lots of photos of Allium Christophii, they're so photogenic.
This poem is placed right beside the stream, I can't remember hearing it before.
Salvia Hot Lips. I bought one of these when I visited the Harrogate Autumn Flower Show in 2008, they're pretty plants so it's a shame it didn't survive the winter.
Californian Poppies are dotted around the Kitchen Garden and elsewhere at the moment.
A photo from the Yorkshire Dales where we spent out Silver Wedding Anniversary on the 7th of July. It was quite dull for most of the time but we still enjoyed our special day.
It's spring onion time and there's plenty to share with my dad, they're his favourites.
This will be my last post for a while as we go on holiday on Saturday. We're staying closer to home this year, in fact we're not going very far at all at first. Our first week will be spent in Pickering, from here we can head off for days on the Yorkshire Coast and the North York Moors as well as visiting the Dalby Forest which Archie will love. After a week, we're moving further north for another week to Northumberland, somewhere I haven't been since I visited with school thirty five years ago. We should have wi-fi in both cottages we're renting but I don't intend to use it very much so I'll see you all when I get back.
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...
