Cottage garden


First hollyhock of the season has opened.


 A black poppy - been and gone from the wind and the rain. The rain has been wonderful for the garden, especially for the new trees planted. Everything is thriving and the water tank is full ready for summer.



Have you seen Mark Gee's photos he is putting up on facebook of his Art of Night Photography Tour to Norway Pop on over they are breathtaking!

Linking up with Mosaic Monday

  5. The northern lights are on my next wish list my first was Cherry blossoms in Japan have been back 2 times lovely place to visit, then it was the xmas markets in Germany we were there this time last year absolutely breath taking. So hope to get to see the northern lights next year and then another is to travel route 66.
