How does your garden grow? July 24th #HDYGG?

HDYGG? – July 24th

July 24th – I went outside with the intention of taking photos of the garden for this week’s HDYGG? post. I got distracted by the girls playing in the paddling pool so I only managed 2 garden photos. It kind of turned into a Country Kids post!

A buddleia is growing in amongst the weeds at the top of the garden. At first, I thought I must have planted the one that got damaged in the move but it’s growing up between the stones where the other greenhouse used to be so I know I didn’t plant anything there.

I’ll be re-homing it when we do the garden because it’s in the place where the pond is going to go.

After the buddleia, I noticed the sweet peas had actually grown and what was even more exciting, they had flowers on! These are the first sweet peas I’ve ever grown so I’m really happy with them 🙂

I was going to take some photos of the hydrangea plants next. That’s when the girls distracted me!






They spent ages playing out in the pool and the tent as it was such a hot day. It was so lovely to sit in the shade and watch them playing nicely together.

    I do love the sweet peas and they have such a lovely fragrance too. Lovely to see the girls having a wonderful time in the summer sunshine with some great water fun. Thanks for linking up and sharing their fun with Country Kids.

    Beautiful flowers! I had good intentions of gardening today however with it being so nice I decided to leave it and headed strawberry picking instead!

    Sweet peas are my favourite flowers, they look gorgeous and smell devine.

    I don't blame you for getting distracted by the girls playing, its so lovely to see kiddies playing.

    I adore sweet peas but never grown my own – I can only imagine how much more special planting and seeing them grow yourself must be! It's such paddling pool weather isn't it? I may have nearly melted today.
    Hope you are enjoying the summer hols so far – thanks for joining in again xxx

    your girlies are adorable! I can see why you would easily get distracted by their antics. 🙂

    The sweet peas are lovely, hoping ours pick up a bit more.
    So nice to see your girls enjoying the garden, certainly the weather for enjoying the outdoors

    And why not get distracted, I notice lots of people's shots widening and even featuring some cheeky young plants this week 😉 We have so many rogue buddleias, my god they can grow fast though!
