We’ve had some much needed rain, not as much as promised though… But certainly you can visibly see the garden breathe a sigh of relief.
The garden is romping away, grass permanently needs mowing and my Peas have flowers on them already.
I recently got some thistles, to add to the garden after having read that some are especially loved by all manner of Butterfly; there’s no way I could possibly not have them in the garden. So far I’ve only seen Bees visiting them, but hope as summer progresses we’ll have flutters enjoying them.
The eared Lady Fern is so very pretty,
The Foamflower and Fern have now been planted in the Cherry border, I hope they do well there.
Raindrop on flower I still haven’t found the name for… It’s very long and starts with A…
Can anyone identify this little Bee? It’s seriously tiny!
Brook Thistle is attracting the Bees for me
Whilst the Tuberous Thistle doesn’t yet have blooms, but booooy does its thorns hurt.
Astrantia Major Roma should bloom soon, my others are well behind this one; but it is a mature plant I’ve had years…
Weigela blooms… I don’t actually like this shrub and one day it will probably be removed but for now it can stay a little longer.
A common sight around the garden at the moment…
Geranium Samobor continues to brighten up the Cherry border, I’m very impressed how large it’s got in just the one season.
Another lovely shaggy Aquilegia, so, so SO happy to see them blooming this year.
Crab Spider? Creepy!
Raindrops always look so beautiful when caught on Lupin leaves.
The Dicentra are still blooming, I don’t actually think they’ve ever bloomed for so long… Must’ve been going over a month now.
Forget-me-nots are close to finishing, time to collect some seeds from the white ones I think.
Clematis Marjorie’s blooms are now almost fully open
Sweet Rocket looks lovely!
