Our garden has been pretty much neglected over the last 5 weeks due to the weather, holidays etc, so the plants have been given their heads and have gone pretty much beserk.
Whilst I love the cottage garden look, I do like some kind of order in the borders, but alas there is some major work to be done. Amongst everything are lots of pesky weeds, gone to seed forget-me-nots - you can at least rip all these out and they will just reappear next year. The brooms have finished and gone all leggy, so they will need a haircut and some kind of staking.
My main problem is that my garden also harbours an enemy - the mosquito. He ignores Peter but makes a bee-line for me. I am sporting 4 bites just from a walk down to pick some rhubard. I therefore have to dress with not an inch of flesh showing and be liberally sprayed with insect repleant. Not so bad if you plan a day in the garden, but a real pain if you just want to spend a short while out there. Not sure what I can do, but really the garden is a no go area for me, which is such a shame. But then its not like we have had any "sitting in the garden" weather yet!
I ventured out this morning, early enough for the blighter not to be about and took a few pictures for you. Enjoy..........
