Wordless Wednesday – giant Japanese anemones

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!

Clematis

I don’t need many words to describe these really but just to say I love white flowers and this white clematis is definitely my favourite of the ones we have in our garden

Wordless Wednesday – Veronica

Snowdrops at last

I thought they had rotted or been eaten but I should have remembered that plants/bulbs in my northern garden are never as far ahead as the south. So I’m very pleased to have found some flowering when I was out just now tidying up again. I keep thinking I’ve finished tidying but I don’t think I ever will. It’s a bit cold for me really (not good for my chest) but I was glad to be outside. I really miss it in winter. So here are the snowdrops I’ve found. A bit small I know but better than nothing and I’m definitely going to get more next year

Wordless Wednesday- sweetpeas

Castle Mey grown from seed in February

First poppies

Every day in my garden at the moment something new is flowering, it’s such an exciting season, I love poppies and 3 out of 5 of them have started flowering today

Sweetpeas

They’ve quickly become one of my favourite summer flowers. I should probably say cut flowers but actually I don’t bring them in much. I love them on the plant where I can get my daily fix of the amazing scent.

White ones in the back garden, some in a container and some in the garden. Pinky/purple in the front, some in the garden and some in a pot. In general the ones in pots are doing better.
