June has been an explosion of flowers, lots of hot dry weather with occasional downpours. I like it when the garden is so full that you can’t see any weeds. There is something about flowers en masse like these, ox-eye daisies, that just lift the spirits.
Having just discovered how to copy my instagram pictures on to here I can take you on a journey through June! I acknowledge that it is an idea pinched from Andrew O’Brien on his much acclaimed blog Gardens, Weeds & Words and he does it much better than me but here we go.
The first flush of roses came out together with the peonies.
The wild flowers were doing their bit too with foxgloves in the woodland
The borders really filled up.
The poppies popped!
And the dahlias began their season.
Oh this nigella was pretty good too!
I think that this is still my favourite plant this June if I had to choose.
Many other flowers were available but I was too busy to photograph them!
In the vegetable garden the first produce, always the best!
It was a squirrel by the way.
Finishing how we started, with more daisies. As I write this in July, these are well over but they lasted about 3 weeks and I really enjoyed them.
