One year on

yesterday was mine and sallyanne's one year wedding anniversary.I bought her an eternity ring with seven diamonds in it, and took us away for the night to Hazlewood castle.I will post some pictures of the gardens.And some ones i took yesterday of new flowers.
The summer sun has killed a lot of my plants off.The rose bushes went into shock and dropped their leaves.The last buds are flowers and no more untill next year!!
the french marigolds shrivveled, the sunflower and foxglove drooped again.
Things that have flowered are some beautiful dutch iris (blue flowers petals with yellow circles, like the things they use at airports to direct planes).
The geraniums in the front window border have beautifull red/pink balls of flowers.My busy lizzies have flowered.The last four surviving plants grown from seeds!!
In the container garden the sedum have put up gorgeous yellow starry flowers, next to the house leek red trumpet flowers.
Gardens, as in life, have stages.When one door closes (or plants wilt in the heat), another opens (or flowers).
I have mental notes for next years garden.A new front garden border curved along the hedge.
A new garden for Chelsea (aged three) to play with and watch things grow.

Congratulations on your anniversary. They say the first year is the hardest so it should be smooth sailing from now on. A ring and a castle. Lucky lady!
