As a rambler, it wants to carry on growing forever - and has managed to sneak out of the 'pyramid' and round the other side of the birch tree....
...and even up into the leaves! It's maybe 10 ft high and growing faster than the tree.
I rather like this weirdly-flowering tree look so for now at least the rose can stay.

From their sheer size and flamboyance the oriental poppies dominate now - there's a variety of pink, red, orangey shades but I'd love to have some darker plum colours too.
I'm not fond of gaps between flowers so it's barely possible to see the soil in places - and even the leeks are hidden here.
A splash of colour by the back door - again no room for weeds!

I like them like this with all the hard edges well hidden but on a wet day it isn't necessarily very pleasant to walk through dripping plants and if I don't keep an eye on things the paths might disappear completely so I've had a bit of a clear up.
|path? what path?|
Some of the aquilegias had been knocked down by wind - or maybe the dog - so I brought a few inside, but as the forget-me-nots get taller and stragglier there's nothing much to be done except pull them out
|the step from patio to lawn,soon to be hidden by foliage|
