The first of my roses are blooming. I was going to get some darker, dusky pink ones this year, but I totally forgot and now's not the right time to plant them, so I'll have to try harder to remember next year. Doh.
This is my favourite, it's either True Love or Aotearoa I can't remember which.
We have a pom pom/snowball bush that we planted last year and it's pom poming all over the place. It's so cute.
I feel I've been terribly lax with the blog recently. First excuse was that the mums were here and we were just too busy and now the excuse is the weather has suddenly got amazing and there's so much to do in the garden. Then with the good weather comes all the other lovely things to do, like boating and diving, dinner at friends houses, barbeques, outings to the beach. I have no idea how we're going to fit everything in this summer.
However, the most pressing thing on the 'to do' list right now is fencing. Our grass is going haywire so it's almost time to buy some new baby moos. But before we do this there's a fair amount of chainsawing to be done. Fallen trees make short work of breaking fences. So after the chainsawing there's the fixing of the fences that said trees fell on top of and squished. I suppose we need to make a start on that this weekend.
