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
THIS PICTURE WAS TAKEN A FEW DAYS LATER AND YOU CAN SEE THE FLOWERS OF THE HOSTA NOW, FRESH AND BEAUTIFUL LIKE A VIRGIN !
MORE SEDUMS, THE YELLOW ONE IS SEDUM ACRE
GOATSBEARD IN BLOOM
AND THE FUCHSIA’ ARE STARTING TO BLOOM, THIS ONE IS FUCHSIA MAGELLANICA MAGELLANICA
THANKS FOR VISITING AND I HOPE YOU’LL ALL HAVE A GREAT WEEK !!
Spring was awesome but as soon as Summer started it all went down hill, yesterday was the worst so far, 13 C° !!!! where as 25 is normal for this time of the year over here, we had LOTS of rain and wind, leafs and even small branches were blown off the three’s !!! Today is a lot better, the temps are back in their twenties and the sun is shining through the clouds !
Here are a few recent pictures of my garden.
PINK GERANIUM, CLEMATIS AND PASSIONFLOWER
AT THE BACK IS AN ALBIZIA JULIBRIZZIN, IN FRONT YOU CAN SEE MY BUDDLEIA OR BUTTERFLY BUSH
LACE CAP HYDRANGEA STARTING TO BLOOM BEHIND THE POND
VERBENA BONARIENSIS, ONE OF MY FAVORITES !
MY WHITE PASSIONFLOWER WITH WHITE MILLIONBELL’S AND IN FRONT AN AUCUBA JAPONICA
When I was looking at the back wall of my house I saw my Passiflora Caruleum and one of my clematis Etoile Violette holding each other and I thought ; well this looks like a match made in heaven. They are clinging on to each other nicely. Although the passion flower is a vigorous grower it does not suffocate the clematis.
And now the passion flower is getting fruits, when ripe they’ll get a bright orange colour.
The rose you can see here is a rambler called Francis E. Lester and it has selfseeded in my skimmia White Kew bush , I don’t have the heart to remove it so I keep it small. Don’t they look good together !!!!! Also a match made in heaven if you ask me. Plants are soooooo clever !
Have a great weekend all ! And thanks for stopping by !
