Garden: Early August

The wet summer has meant plenty of vigorous growth in the garden. And this recent sunny spell has seen the garden at its best. The woodbine has never been better and the sweet pea have done remarkably well also. The herbs are overflowing their space, the fennel and the feverfew especially prominent.

In the background the nasturtiums look good in the old wheelbarrow and the willows provide a good framework for the old rambling roses. And the fuchsia is doing well in the hanging thingumajig.

A relation said "I love the wilderness look of the garden!" I said "It takes a lot of work to get that wild uncared-for look".
