It’s raining again, but hey, what the heck………

It's yet another very wet day here in Lancashire, England but I couldn't resist checking on progress even if I couldn't do much. The peony's don't do well in the rain. The flowers are far too full and when they get wet they hang their heads to the ground. I hope the rose buds don't hold too much water or they'll try to open but just be brown and soggy. Everything else loves it and looks so green.



Does anyone know what this little fern is. It's placed itself in my fern wall, conveniently.



Lots of flowers on microtoms.



Little hoverfly on my asparagus. Good bug.



Wet euphorbia looks good.



Black sambucus is just starting to bloom. Would collect the berries but the birds get them first. I don't mind, they eat all my snails, slugs and bad bugs too.



Oregano has really bushed out since I planted it in the ground out of it's root bound pot. Must harvest it before it flowers and gets too woody.



The fern and hosta corner has really filled out, especially the blue hosta behind my son who I put there to show the scale of things.


And this is just because I like it. A twinkly Cotinus (smoke bush)


Thats it for today. We here could do with some sun now to get things really blooming.
