November garden

 Pulled out the Broad bean plants. Izzy picking the last beans and feeding them to her sister. 
Never seen a kid so keen to eat raw broad beans!

 Antirrhinums or Snapdragons 
 Nigella 'Love in a mist'
 Pink carpet roses under shade, just starting to flower
Below, same carpet rose in full sun, monster, over two metres in height and almost three wide.
Would make an awesome rose hedge.

 A double white carpet rose
 Irises
 'Wedding Day' rambling rose in flower, pink fairy rose on trellis
 'Wedding day'
I took this one at 8pm last night. Still light. One kid asleep and the other on her way.
It helps having the extra daylight to do things like poison grass. This bed coming along. 
Got rocks from Mums old house on the hill and out at BILs farm :)

    1. Thanks Ann. Finally got it poisoned the other night, took the opportunity while it was still light and the kids were asleep. Can't wait til I can fill it up :)

    1. She loves to eat that one, I like to see it too, and that's the best way to eat them, crouched in the garden and fresh from the pod!

  3. What a lovely garden. Grass is one of my number one enemies in my garden. Just when I think I have it all another bit pops up.

    1. There is always something to do. When people say lovely garden, I say dont look too hard because they will see the weeds!

    1. I love bringing the flowers inside, come to think of it, there probably isn't a week when there isn't some sort of flower in a vase. Much cheaper to grow them yourself :)

    1. It is very pretty and dainty. It goes to seed like crazy and it comes up every year without too much help from me.

    1. In the height of Summer it doesn't get pitch black until nearly 9 pm.
      Lovely to have your Mum look at my pics :)

    1. Thanks Aroha. Summer doesn't do too bad going to sleep when it's still light, thank goodness. That's where block out curtains come in handy.
