Good day garden hounds! This changeable weather seems to have unleashed a whole host of floral explosions across gardens countrywide and that’s something I’ll never complain about. Photos this week are from my mum’s garden, which is a riot of colour at the moment. The anemones she bought as a packet of seeds super cheap and have done really well, seeing them swaying the breeze was such a perfect summers-nearly-here feeling.

As ever, thanks to all who joined in last week, some faves include: a cottage garden, cheery cherry blossom, Chiddingstone Castle, a rare and unusual plant fair and a really interesting post about township gardening in South Africa.

I hope that you have enjoyed your week and managed to get outside and enjoy some gardens!

  1. these are such gorgeous pictures Annie. bright but with a certain darkness to them at the same time. i love them! and am loving the new blog look also. xx -Claudia

  2. What an amazing garden your mum has. I need some of her magic with my summer bulbs…sadly they haven’t really come to anything yet! I especially love those yellows tip toeing out of the dark background. You’re very clever! I love the new look to your blog too Annie. Thank you for hosting and for the mention. xx

  3. My mum has a glass plate with anemones on and I’ve had a soft spot for them ever since. I did sow some last year as part of a wild flower mix but got more foliage than flower. Your mum has got quite a magnificent display. I love the description of the catkins.

  4. Those anemones are beautiful, I must try to grow some for next year. Love the tulips too and seeing what things have been planted in like the vintage tub. The vintage books too, gorgeous.

  5. Love the contrast of the bold flowers with the quiet nooks and pots and books. Simply gorgeous photos Annie.

  6. Anemones! Thank you, now I know what is growing in our garden!
    Your mother has such a beautiful garden, you’ve really captured it in such a wonderful light. And those books, I bet hours could be lost devouring those.
