It’s been 2 weeks since my last round up and I’m going to take a 2 week blogging break so this will be my last post for a while.
The garden is in it’s prime at the moment. My Mother in Law is here to stay and I’m so pleased she has brought the sunshine with her!
Crocosmia is flowering now.
There is lots of Crocosmia so I’m going to divide these in the Autumn
I’m loving some of the combinations of colours
The Lupins have died back but this border is still glorious!
Butterflies have been abundant. This Gatekeeper looks happy!
Lots of bees
Cabbage White butterflies have laid their eggs all over my cauliflower but I don’t mind!
The pumpkin is going bonkers; it obviously loves this spot!
The broadbeans are reaching towards the sky!
Lots of flowers on the pumpkins
The peas have failed. They are covered in spiders and caterpillars and the peppers haven’t done so well. Still trial and error in the Old House Garden. We have lots of tomatoes and cucumbers though.
Phlox. They are so beautiful.
We have 3 different coloured Phlox.
I love some of the accidental colours mixes!
Cornflowers; such a vivid blue.
Roses are blooming.
Loads of Japanese Anemone are now appearing in drifts near the house.
I love that the Cosmos just keep flowering!
The meadow area has really taken off! I’m so pleased with this area as I just sprinkled lots of seeds in May hoping to cover this sad little area!
The insects are loving this area!
Tilly also loves the insects in this area!!
Another round up done! I shall leave you with my pets.
Dottie and “pig”
Happy summer everyone and see you in August for #MyGloriousGardens Linky party!
