Blooms in June

In the back garden most of the phacelia has now been cut down to make way for other plantings, though the nights are certainly not warm by any means. In other words there is lots of bare ground at the moment. 

Enough about that though…. There is plenty going on besides a lament over the weather here.


The manetout are coming into flower. I am sure there were no flowers yesterday!


The Ruby Anniversary rose bush is having a field day with its flowers. And I can admire them from the patio.


The Dianthus Diamond I bought at Kew Gardens a couple of years ago is also in full swing. I’ve planted it in the wrong place though, as the chard stops me from admiring it from the patio.


Last but not least is another unknown. I thought it might be a lone parsnip from an attempt to grow them in this spot earlier in the year but now I’m not so sure. Anyway, I can’t wait to eat the strawberry growing next to it – if the birds don’t get there first!



About Helen

I have always been interesting in living a more environmentally friendly lifestyle and used to do what I could. Now, I have come to realise that we have reached such a point in terms of environmental degradation that it is more important - perhaps - to focus on building resilience. I therefore do as much as I can to reuse, grow my own and encourage a supportive community, for example. I also keep reading and learning all the time.
