What a wonderful garden and plantings its very stately ;D somebody is a very hard worker. Love the little terrapins and I dont think Ive seen such a large poppy!! I planted some seeds but I think they must be flowering in Australia.
Lovely photos Andy, you have get it looking better and better each year.
The achilleas are putting on a great show for you, but they are very invasive in my garden, they send up runners everywhere! I've kept band of gold as it doesn't seem quite as vigorous, but all the red and pink ones had to go to new homes
Twixt optimist and pessimist the difference is droll, the optimist sees the doughnut whilst the pessimist sees the hole
