It looks and feels like Summer

 
I've been working on a piece for an online Christmas Swap, so I can't show you and I'm still reading books by Caro Ramsay. I downloaded one of her books to read while I was on holiday and enjoyed it so much, I am now in the middle of a 5th book written by her. I'm going to show you my front garden. There was a lot of rain over Winter and now that the weather has warmed I have an explosion of colour. The roses have all bloomed as well as the tall irises and the Granny's Bonnets. The smaller irises have been and gone just like the blue echiums. Today has been sunny and warm, 28C so they must think it's Summer.
 
 
 
 
 
 
The old common Nasturtiums have spread wide and far and they look good indoors too.

 
Now that the third flower has opened on my Lily it is looking wonderful. It sits on the verandah and I can see it through the window.

What a beautiful garden! I am jealous! I loves gardens, but my allergies have kept me from touching plants the last few years, so my garden is out of control! I am tempted to kill it all, but may try again next year sinc I have started allergy shots. Yours looks professional it's so beautiful!

Beautiful gardens, fall is definitely here now. Still cloudy and raining, on and off, the edge of the storm is still hovering over us.

What is the name of the pattern, please?!?? Is it the single wedding ring? Did you fussy-cut the centers?? (As this is the header, I couldn't klick to see it bigger.) What work!! Thank you for your kind reply!
