    The roses are gorgeous, but the poppies and the honeysuckle are stunning, I'm envious :D

    I love seeing photos!
    Do you know the variety of the yellow rose?
    And what's the pink & white speckled / marbled flower

    Your garden must be beautiful

    Thanks .. :) The honeysuckle was dumped in the lanes near me still in its large pot and butchered to near death.. so i picked it up and up it a quiet spot and left it for a year and slowly it started to regrow.. This the 3rd year that i have had it.. it was planted last year so its done very well best its every looked and smell is mind blowing especialy in the evening ... The poppies i brought off ebay as plugs last year.

    You've done a great job saving the honeysuckle, the smell is mind blowing I agree, it always reminds me of my childhood because it grew wild in the hedgerows at the back of our house. Another that grew there was p...y willow, I love that too.

    What beautiful flowers! Thank you for sharing. I have to admit I'm not a flower person, more leaf / foliage for me. But I have got an Alfred Carriere which despite my best efforts comes back year after year :o Already blooming away.. I had a good 'bury my nose' session after work day today :D

    I love the honeysuckle too. I have one growing in the front garden which has been there for years and I can't remember it ever having a decent showing of flowers. I've taken some cuttings this year and they seem to be thriving. It'll be a fair while before they'll be big enough to plant out but I'm hoping if I dot them around the back garden (in an attempt to cover several delapidated fence panels), they'll be even just a smidgen as beautiful as yours.
