My passion in life is gardening and specifically growing flowers from seed

Cherry tree blossom

Apple Blossom

I wish I could tell you it smells nice but my sense of smell has evaded me as I currently have COVID- I hope it returns soon as I love growing scented plants in the garden and I would like to smell them!

Magnolias

I’m cheating again slightly here as the second picture isn’t actually of a tree in my garden but is so pretty I could t resist including it here

June 2020 in my garden

Lots of plants flowering at the moment, in fact properly something different starts each day. The soil seems dry again even after so much rain but at least the water butts are full! I went out weeding yesterday and was excited to find some more spaces in the garden which means o can buy more plants. Still only online for me! Anyway here’s some pictures of what’s currently flowering

Sweetpeas grown from seed I’ve collected over several years so therefore I have no idea what variety but they smell lovely
Mock orange, it has a scent but not one I like. However, I love the white flowers
Geranium grown from a cutting in case the original died which fortunately it didn’t. I gave the original a harsh pruning in the winter and then kept it in the greenhouse overwinter but it looks great for the treatment it’s endured!

Cherry tree

I had a lot of trouble taking this picture, I wanted the cherry tree to be the centre of attention and avoid the compost heap, washing line, shed and too much of the big tree at the back. So here’s my best attempt, here’s hoping for more than 6 cherries this year and that we get them before the birds. We tried to cover it one year which meant the birds couldn’t get the cherries but neither could I and it didn’t look very nice!
