Garden Blogger’s Bloom Day – June 2013
The months are honestly flying by and it’s hard to believe it’s the middle of June now. Work continues on the house, I’m slowly but surely trying to get rid of any clutter and generally tidy/paint.
After a month or so of pretty awesome weather, it’s no surprise that the garden is looking its best. The plants would probably appreciate some rain and sure enough some is due later in the week… see, I don’t mind rain.
Rose season is beginning, albeit a little late but I can’t hold a grudge for long.
There are plenty of flowers blooming now, and actually we had our first real rain in a long time so lots of plants are now fallen over and look a mess. I can’t chop back the Geraniums and Centurium though because they’re only just beginning to bloom so I’ll have to put up with flattened plants for a while and gradually chop back. It’s also caused ‘Harlow Carr’ to double over as the blooms fill with water and can’t hold their pretty faces up, so looks like I’ll have the terrible job of bringing them indoors for vases. Oh woe is me. Ha ha.
Onto the blooms, we’ll start with Tiarella and some more Alliums. Oh and throughout the post you might begin to notice there’s a certain colour I like. I can’t see it myself but others have informed me there’s very much a preference to my palette.
I’ve a number of Erysimum in the front garden, and surprisingly I love them all 🙂
