IN BLOOM TODAY

I took some pictures today of the flowers in bloom in my garden. I think June is about the prettiest month of the year.

LOVE IS IN THE AIR

My Guirlande D’amour rose is in bloom and my whole garden smells of roses at the moment. Guirlande D’amour is a rambler rose, half double, snow white and has a lovely delicate smell. I have this rose in my garden for about 20 years now and she is beautifull when in bloom. I give it a cut in Autumn, just the longest branches and then in Spring it gets a good cut and a bit of dried cow manure, thats it. It keeps blooming till the frosts come, not as much as it blooms in June though.

You can’t see anything of the wooden bow as it is completely covered by the rose. This rose is also the favorite place for birds to make their nest in and for the bees of course, they just love it. And so do I.

Have a great day and thanks for your visit.

CHIVES IN BLOOM

As we had a soft Spring the herbs in the garden were early, so at the moment the chives is in bloom. From chives you can eat the leafs but also the flowers, they look pretty in a salad. But I prefer the flowers on the plant as they are in bloom for a long time and the bees love them, so in my garden the flowers are all for the bees.
