Before going to Tatton park on Wednesday I spent Tuesday night at mums and dads so Judith and I could get an early start, Judith is Roberts sister my sister in law. We woke to a dull gray sky followed by rain on and off all day.

Busy at the shop

It is such a busy time at the moment in the shop with weddings and a good amount of plants to sell. I love the light nights and spend as much time as possible outside. I find dead heading therapeutic and although its a small garden its packed with plants and there is always something to do. I have been cutting away the spent flowers and foliage with the hope of a second bloom. the poppies I cut a few weeks ago are coming again one plant is nearly ready to bloom. We have had a lot of plants at work and it tempting not to buy them all, but if i haven't got them in my garden i cant resist. At the moment I'm filling in the gaps.

Before my day starts at the shop I have to bring the four trolleys out and make the display against the front of the shop. The sun is on the shop all day so the cut flower bunches for sale are left in the shop. It takes a lot of watering at the end of the day but hopefully I will sell a lot throughout the day.

Just a few of the bridal work I have been doing this week.

July garden

Roberts three teared pot growing nicely.

I was a bit worried back in spring as I cut back the passion flower really hard and thought I had gone to far, but as you can see its OK. Robert has now tided it up and we can see out of the window now. The hanging basket is full of cherry tomato's we just need them to ripen.

This is my new David Austin rose hopefully it will grow up the wall, it has a lovely smell.
