Round and round the garden...

...like a teddy bear...

So, I have taken far too many photos of this garden in recent weeks but I like a lot of them so I am going to subject you to looking at them! I hope you'll find them pleasant viewing though! I have actually included some of my favourites at the end of other posts so I won't repeat them here. And I'm only posting the floral photos for now...there are so many photos of tomatoes and chillies and other greenhouse things I'll put them in a separate post!

Unfortunately I can't claim any of the credit for this beautiful garden or the flowers and plants that grow in it. It belongs to the brewery where Phil works. He's had to work a bit over the last few weekends so I've been along too so that I could spend some time documenting the growth of the plants in the greenhouse (that is Phil's handy work) and just enjoying the garden and taking photos of the flowers.

Enjoy...!

Ok, so this is technically in the greenhouse but it's a flower so that's ok...from the watermelon plant!

And another cool thing about the watermelon plant...it has orangey-pinky sap! How cool is that?!

How quirky and unique are these flowers...I have no idea what they are called! There are lots of them around the garden in various shades of pink and orange.

This plant was a little strange and I'm not sure I managed to get a good photo of it. The white bits look almost fluffy but they are actually lots of tiny white flowers. And I love the contrast with the red branches.

There are quite a few poppies in the garden in a variety of colours...purple, pink, orange. You may remember the purple one from a Big Word Wednesday post a few weeks ago?!

I could not quite get the detail of this flower that I wanted. It was almost as if the pink was just to bright for my camera to cope with!

I love this ivy and have been trying to take a good photo of it for ages. I love the way it contrasts with the red wall behind.

That's all for now!
How much do I just want to be sitting in the garden having tea and cakes now?! Very much!!!

Thank you Afia!
And you can certainly join me for tea and cake! And maybe some cartwheels too?! We'll have to arrange to make it happen when you're over in September! x

Very pleasing to the eye.
My favourite EVER piccie is the singing bird. Going to have it printed on canvas cos it reminds me of you.

Thanks!
That's funny that a bird reminds you of me! Of course it is a cute little bird not one of the huge scary seagulls we get by our flat! And it was hiding while singing in the tree.

Hope you're well. Glad you can comment now!!!
