I always think my garden looks its worst at this stage of the year - it looks more like a building site!
All the spring bedding has been removed and now the summer bedding has been planted - but the young plants are not yet in flower - they still have plenty of growing to do. I have little doubt that the next time I show you this scene it will be a riot of colour!
I have planted out six hanging baskets, and each basket contains 13 plants - making 78 in all. There care six trailing lobelia in Cambridge blue and seven petunias in patriotic colours. The raised bed contains 29 antirrhinums in assorted colours and 9 patriotic petunias.
You can see the barbecue stove in the background - it remains to be seen whether it will be used this year!
