it isn't exactly as I'd imagined.......but I like it.
And here they are.......very difficult for me as rabbits love them. I have planted them in the middle of a bed and surrounded them with plants that rabbits dislike. I hold my breath each day, as I walk the garden, in case a tiny bunny has got in there and gobbled them all up. So far, so good.
Calendula 'art shades' and Helipterum Pierrot.....I grew them in the greenhouse from seed. They are dotted around the garden in small drifts.....I am pleased, nice, very nice.
I have an old pear tree in the front garden........I love the way this clematis scrambles up it's old trunk and branches. I love to look at it from the bedroom window.....the blooms always reach the top of the tree......
As many of you will know from my posts last year my hanging baskets have always been a problem here. An exposed site.... strong winds......and south facing, the conditions are not good. This year I decided to plant them with native wildflowers and ivy.....and do you know, I like them. I only have to water them every other day and they have been blooming for six weeks. I shall be doing this next year.
While stolling the garden I noticed this beautiful butterfly.
The small tortoiseshell.....I havn't seen one for quite a while.....so this was very much a bonus. I love the blue edging to her wings.
The weather is warm....pleasantly warm......and it should last for the rest of the week. I love June.......how about you??
