Rose abundance in June

I’ve not been in the garden much this past couple of weeks due to a maintenance issue with a neighbouring property, but now that’s fixed I’m making up for it big time. The sheer number of weeds, including rapeseed from a field behind us, has made recovering the garden quite a challenge this week – but it’s one I’m so pleased to take on. (To give you a sense of just how willing I am: a couple of times I’ve almost fallen over in my enthusiasm to pull the weeds up).

Isn’t June a beautiful month? Everything is burgeoning, vibrant and soaking up the warmth of the sun. Our roses have made an appearance now, and the strong myrrh scent of one in particular – ‘Scepter’d Isle’ – is just gorgeous.

Rosa ‘Scepter’d Isle’ – I highly recommend this beautiful rose for your garden.
My pink passion continues with these PapaverĀ ‘Princess Victoria Louise‘Ā .
They are huge, and the stark contrast of such a dark centre and candyfloss pink petals is sublime.
I like this combination of yellow, pinks and purples. Achillea ‘Moonshine’ puts on quite a show for months.
(Do you know what the plant on the bottom far right is…?)
Quite a dreamy Delphinium…its colours remind me of a Disney princess’ dress.
Carol the pheasant says hello…I named her after Carol Klein !

I hope your weekend is restful and that you’re enjoying June as much as I am.

Until next time,

šŸŒž Katherine
