GBBD June 2011




Lots of growth at the moment due to warmth and rain so my garden has an impressive crop of weeds. Despite that I think I have managed to find a few unrestricted views of flowers to show you on today's Bloom Day, brought to us as ever by Carol at May Dreams Garden.

Lots of blue and yellow on show as the Perovkia is getting going together with clouds of Santolina pompoms of various hues and Nepeta, Achillea, Heremocallis, Salvias, Gaura, Hyperium, Scabious, Rue and Hyssop. Many of the roses have finished but the ones that are still going, including Susan Daniel, are very welcome. The Pomegrates are in full bloom too with Honeysuckle and Tracleospermum Jasminoides providing a heady scent. Lavender is just starting to come out.

Lovely ... wonderful pond. Seems the weather is the main issue no matter where one gardens.

Your garden and especially the pond are looking lovely; as Joene commented the weather IS always the issue. I think my garden is roughly 2 weeks ahead of last year. Christina
