First Flowers of Summer

Following so much rain, the flowers are finally coming out in the garden.  Of course it is now boiling hot and so I know that nothing will last long and my job of Head Waterer (we have a hosepipe ban in place) is definitely confirmed.

Early evening on Friday looking down the garden from my garden seat.  Bliss.

Foxgloves in lilac and white.  I like the lilac the best.  Mum likes the white.

Already fading, but the first yellow rose on the arch.  This one is on the opposite side:

And my beloved peonies are starting to come out of hiding (yippee!)
