It has been such dreadful weather this month (June) that we haven’t got out at all. Luckily we have not been affected by the floods – I feel very sorry for those whose home and belongings have been ruined.
So I thought I would take you on a bit of a walk round our garden – everything is growing well, including the grass and the weeds!
I have antirrhinums in pots on the patio, and they have done very well. I also have African Marigolds, and the raindrops on the petals looked like diamonds fixed in a piece of jewellery.
The pink roses have again gone riot among our orange honeysuckle! I quite like the contrast. If you look at the right hand picture you will see why I can’t prune the roses properly – the honeysuckle has longingly entwined itself around the roses!
The Mock Orange is lovely again And smells gorgeous especially after rain
We have a very tall foxglove – If you look in the centre top of the photo you can see it peeping out from the Buddleia. I reckon the flower spike is at least 4 ft. high! We only spotted it when it appeared at the top!
And lastly a view down what I grandly term our herbaceous bed! Last of the alliums and aquilegias, plus nepeta, astrantia and alchemilla. Good old reliable favourites of mine!
Sorry this blog is rather late, but I thought I ought to prove I was still alive!
