Hot or not….. the Day Lilies have really enjoyed this spell of sunny weather.   I have said it before but will repeat myself…..  of all the lilies I do love the Day Lily.  It just seems so sad that all the effort goes into generating these fabulous flower heads, only for then to shrivel up overnight.

Roses are also enjoying this summer spell of weather.  All shapes and all sizes, each year they surprise us when the buds burst….

The reward for me today was the arrival of  Masquerade.  No blooms the same, just a wash of shades of pinks with a golden centre.

Glucksburg Castle.

Home of the Dukes of Schleswig-Holstein for well over 400 years, Glucksburg Castle is Germanys largest ‘moated’ castles.   When it was built between 1582 & 1587, by Duke Johann the Younger, it was to become one of the most significant family seats in norther Europe.

Not a bad place to live, you can understand why it is still a family home.
