Everythings coming up Rosy

Yep thats right! …Although we are heading for the Autumn…everything is coming up Rosy in the Happy House Garden…

We have chronic ivy syndrome…climbing for England up the side of the house and everywhere else for that matter 🙂

We have plants growing in our garden that I am not quite sure of (below) please tell me what this is…or what it will grow into?

We also have grapes growing abundantly at the back of our garden…I couldnt believe it when I first spotted them! …..as they definitely were not there last year!

Our Holly Tree is having a growing spurt too! it is nearly touching Our Holivan, and offers some timely shade in the garden.


We also have passion fruits growing in our garden (above left)…they are a present from our lovely neighbours next door…they have grown all the way over our garage at the bottom of our garden…next year they will be trailing all along the wall too…which will cover up some nasty breeze blocks that I have been meaning to paint!

What have you had growing in your garden this year that wasn’t there last year….and has your garden gone CrAzY like mine?  (Its probably due to all the rain we have had of late! 🙂

    Everything looks beautiful in your gardens. Congrats to your daughter.. She is very beautiful. My oldest is starting her 2nd yr of college also ~ she was an art major and now has switched to teaching. Like you, I am very proud and I know that she'll make great choices. Have a great Thursday.

    What a lovely blowsy garden. I think the rain has made everything grow again, even though it should be slowing down now.The squirrels will like your hazel. They clear the nuts from ours, we don't get a look in!

    What a wonderful garden! Grapes, that's great..thanks to some vagrant bird offerings, no doubt! All I get in my little balcony 'garden' is bird 'offerings' aplenty in the wee bird bath I have on my railing…I do have a mystery plant, growing in a pot that should be housing a poppy…very hot and dry here, so not much of anything in abundance..I envy you your lovely garden, and congrats to your daughter!

    I too had a mystery plant this year. I googled it and its a ground covering periwinkle. Its has gorgeous blue flowers, late spring. A nice surprise. The grapes look great.
