Good Morning all - The sun's shining!!
Our garden is a bit "in between" at the moment, having lost its Spring colour but not yet got its early Summer flowers (its about a month behind last year) - so here's a shot across the garden from this time last year (using a sigma 10-20, uncorrected for distortion)
This is what it looked like at the end of April this year (see what I mean about being behind!)
Clematis with the garden shed as a background. They remind me of aliens peering out from their ship to see if the coast is clear.
My garden is an odd shape and difficult to photograph but I'll have a go later.
A friends garden he asked me to photograph for him.

BBQ round his place then!!!!
Mine from a couple of years ago. Pretty much the same now but not as tidy or colourful.
Wow, you all have really beautiful gardens!!
Here's the only one I have of mine really.
My garden looks OK from 10-20 yards away, any closer and you see that most of the colour is from weeds and all the green is ground elder!! Most of the credit has to go to the previous owner who was very keen!
The flag is our neighbour's, he puts it up on St Georges Day and it remains up all summer!
one flower that is doing well again this year is our Bearded Iris, they provide a lovely splash of different colours in our front, south facing, shingle garden. They do go over very quickly though, one or two days / bloom and then they are gone.
Here's one I picked in to shoot (too much other foliage arround to shoot it in-situ at the moment)
Part of our garden taken just 10 minutes ago. We suffer from very sandy soil so the grass goes white at the shortest dry spell. Add to that a 20 month old dog who still does girly wees and I am fighting a losing battle with the grass.
Give up Andy and do what we did, 4.5 tonne of shingle out the back and 2 tonne on the front. Plant your plants though the shingle / membrane - end of watering problems (mine hasn't been watered for around 14 years now) and you get to throw away the lawnmower as an added bonus!
I was going to take one this evening but the sun has left my little garden and besides I preferred it when I took this shot the other day before I chopped all the Daisy heads off..... It's a bit of a jungle out there but it's mine and I love it......there's even a pond hidden in there as well...
this is the view from inside an old vintage wheelbarrow, which is in my garden. The plants are actually from the packs of bird seed you buy at the garden center. I was curious to see what grew from the sacks....
