We finally have Summer weather so lots of plants are flowering, this is the best time of the year for me, June and July, everything in the garden looks good and there are a lot of flowers about. We have our meals in the garden morning noon and evening !
CLEMATIS ETOILLE VIOLETTE
ALCHEMILLA MOLLIS OR LADIES MANTLE, IN THE BLUE POT GROWS A YELLOW DAHLIA, NOT IN BLOOM YET AS WE HAD COLD AND WET WEATHER FOR A LONG TIME AFTER WINTER
A WHITE FLOWERING HOSTA AND IN FRONT OF THE HOSTA IS A WHITE TRAILING BEGONIA, THE BEGONIA HAS BUDS BUT YOU CAN’T SEE THEM YET UNLESS YOU LOOK UNDER THE LEAFS, THE SUMMERBULBS ARE ALL LATE COS OF THE COLD WEATHER WE HAD IN SPRING

THANKS FOR VISITING AND I HOPE YOU’LL ALL HAVE A GREAT WEEK !!
When I put my yucca in the garden in May it didn’t look so good, a lot of it’s leafs were dead so I could either trow it away or experiment with it and as I love to experiment I choose to cut off all the leafs and a bit of the trunk, I used something to cover the wounds so the trunks wouldn’t rot and I waited and waited and for a long time nothing happened but I know plants are very strong and sometimes need a lot of time to do what they have to do and after a few months I noticed new life, yeuhhh !!!! The leafs are tiny but it has many new shoots so I am happy I made the right choice.
IN THE BACK YOU CAN SEE A BIT OF MY CACTI AND SUCCULENT COLLECTION
