    Default An English country garden!


    And in the recent rains



    Apple blossom, the outbuilding will be for hens
    Raindrops on roses!

    Fantin La Tour.

    It's humble but it's home, Judi

    Oh, Judi, it is wonderful. I especially love the shot of the outbuilding and apple tree. Your roses are beautiful too! It must be so relaxing there.

    Cheers,

    Love the sitting bench in that shaded corner. How pretty. I wish I had some pic's of my dad's place up in Michigan. It's got little shaded areas.....

    What a gorgeous setting... can imagine sitting on a lovely sunny day on that bench with the next HP book! So the big purple flowering tree looking thing is a rose??? It sure is pretty! Oh and, the hens sure look like they will have a lovely home.

    Yes I have 3 lilacs, the dark purple at the end of the garden was especially fragrant this year. We had a lovely warm spring, and it's never stopped raining since! We had floods a few weeks ago, we escaped lightly as surrounding villages had 2-3 feet of water
