I went into the Cottage Garden searching for roses.
I knew there were a few blooms in there, because I could see them from the upstairs window.
What I found were hundreds of buds getting ready to open!
You can see more rose buds to the left of the spikes in this image, and more on the arbor.
There were few blooms, but the ones that I captured were stunning.
As I made my way out of the garden, I found the pretty Yarrow that the Butterflies love so much.
Lavender Speedwell....great for drying.
Some of the Lavender is starting to open.
A climber making it's way up the back of the house.
Lavender Veronica welcoming visitors along the walkway. The red species is almost ready to bloom as well.
You can be sure I will be back out in the Cottage Garden with my camera taking more photos as the petals unfurl.
I doubt I will have to stand in the upstairs window to find the blooms!!!
Have a happy day.
