My flower garden is looking really lovely at the moment.
I planted standard roses last year for the first time and they are just beautiful. Aphids seem to like them almost as much as me but I can live with a few aphids when the roses are so pretty.
The peony has finally opened and it's as good as I thought it would be. I can't wait for next year when it should produce many more flowers.
The poppies have also put on a great display and the bumblebees go crazy for them they are worth planting just to keep the bumblebees happy.
I don't often pick the flowers in my garden as I really enjoyed being able to look outside and see them happily growing.
