It's a nice, but overcast day today, so great for taking photographs. The Cottage Garden is in that in-between state of being mostly 'green' right now. It reminds me of a great gardening quote, 'if you're going to grow perennials, you'd better learn to like green' - lucky for me, I do!
I do have a few colourful things blooming now and the irises are just about ready to burst open into beautiful colour all over the garden.
A few pictures from this morning:
