It’s that time of year where the garden moves so quickly that if you blink, you might just miss it.
The solstice has passed… Nooooooooooooooo I hate this now, knowing it’s getting darker again… will try not to let it depress me!
The heat is rising once more… I hope it doesn’t stay too long, there’s only so many hot days I can cope with. As always, never happy 🙂
Dwarf Bean flower
And a first for my garden…
A Small Copper Butterfly!
Another Iris opened up, and it’s even deeper than the other!
Tough choice to decide which I prefer…
Does anyone know what this is? I assume some sort of parasitic wasp…
Bird’s Foot Trefoil, another great native, loved by the Bees but also a larval food plant for Blue Butterflies.
Honesty – I look forward to the seed pods!
A Ladybird… Not sure which type.
Does anyone know why one poppy has pink hairs and the other white? They both seem to be wild poppies…
A pretty Geranium
And a glimpse at the growth in one of the borders… Aquilegia, Hollyhock, Sea Holly, Allium, Foxglove and Verbena Hastata.
