Colour in the garden

I thought I would show what is happening in my garden. We are trying to revamp the pond area and one of the things we were going to do was to remove the above little pebble pond and put the fountain shown below. But I decided that we would keep that little pond as it is home for a little froggie who keeps popping his head out when I come near it LOL! I too rather like that pond. So I persuaded J to put the new fountain close to it.
We had removed the old pond and put a rock garden in its place last year well some of it survived and it is not beginning to get established slowly although need to do more work there and put more big rocks in. Due to the hot weather and water control we lost some of the plants and had to plant them again.
This Clematis is in full bloom and the roses are beginning to bloom too. I think they should be in full bloom by the end of next week.
Rhododendrons and Roses bring such lovely colour to the garden.


  1. Love your flower garned Shashi, just beautiful!! Also love what you did with your little pond..

  2. Your garden is beautiful, Shashi!
    Hope you're having a lovely weekend. (((hugs)))

  3. Your flowers are lovely, Sheshi! Wish I could grow roses like that, but the Japanese beetles find them much too appetizing! I think my favorite part of your yard is that beautiful old brick wall that supports your clematis and roses!

  4. I'm in agreement with Sweet Mary about that wall of trailing flowers! So BEAUTIFUL! In fact, your entire YARD is not only pretty but very peaceful looking! I would love just sitting out there & having a cup of tea, enjoying the garden's beauty!
