At last a Beautiful Day!!

Today the weather has been glorious, the sun has been shining and there has been a warm breeze. It was so unusual for a Bank Holiday to be so nice.
We decided to go out for lunch with mum and dad, we decided on the John Bunyan. Unfortunately for us it seemed that every bike rider in Herts had headed for there as well!! There was one bar man serving and people were queued 5 deep at the bar. It didn't really matter that we had to wait 45 minutes for the food to appear because we were sitting outside watching the world go by.

I took some photos of some of my violas, I bought bowl of them from Lidls a few weeks ago and they have flowered and flowered. I think they are so pretty such an unusual mixture of colours.

I think I am going to try and grow them on outside.

Beautiful - I've some tiny wild ones growing on the grass - when I left my hanging basket outside last year after it had all died off - seem to have seeded!

Those flowers are so pretty! I wonder if they do well in full sun? I need something for my deck flower boxes.

Okay, so what is a Bank Holiday?

Thanks for stopping by! Those fences seem to take FOREVER to paint, but look so good when it's done.

Gorgeous flowers! I hope they continue to do well for you. We've had some marigolds we planted from seed that are finally blooming, but not so pretty as these. My roses, I'm happy to report, are going bonkers.
