How Does Your Garden Grow? - Week 31

Not a great deal has been going on in our garden this week. There are some flowers dying off, some that are still going strong, but apart from the huge sunflower nothing new is blooming at the moment.

However we saw some pretty pond lilies at the weekend during a visit to Normanby Hall.

So this week I am sharing some pictures of Isabella enormous sunflower and some from our lovely walk.

This is how our garden has grown this week...














As always I am sharing my garden photographs with the lovely Manneskjur - How Does Your Garden Grow?

  6. That is a MONSTER sunflower! Blimey!
    Those waterlilies are so lovely, I love how close you managed to get, and without falling in too (I nearly did last week!) Normanby Hall looks gorgeous - I used to dream of living somewhere like that as a teenager reading Bronte books!

    Thanks for joining in again - hope you are back on top form now x

    1. We think that there must have been a wedding there the day before and they'd missed the wine glasses :-)
