Relaxing in the garden

Its wonderful weather. Its a real treat to step out into the garden first thing in the morning. The air is still and cool, but you know its going to be a scorcher.

Its the weekend and two loads of washing are drying in the sun; the fridge is full and we've been to stock up on organic veg and food. So a guilt-free afternoon is in order - sitting on the patio under an umbrella, reading the papers and sipping Earl Grey - and admiring the first rose, the sweet peas, some petunias planted in the bottom of the old Tortoise stove that kept the school warm (when it was a Victorian school) and an oriental poppy.

Your garden looks peaceful and pretty. Aren't the warm days lovely? School is finished for the summer this week and I'm virtually free for 2 months!! Pure bliss! Wish my hubby had the time off too.
I have the same shade of poppy...didn't know it till it bloomed this spring. Just planted 2 plants last year. The other one is bright orange.
I love sweetpeas and petunias.
