We have an arboretum nearby and I visited their rose garden today, alas I was a few weeks too late cos of the hot and dry weather we have been having the last 2 months but I enjoyed it never the less. I really wish I could sent you the smell of the roses , the buzz of the bees and the sound of the birds ! This arboretum has tree’s, shrubs and plants from all over the world and they get busloads of tourists but today it was as if it was my private garden.
YOU CAN SEE THEY WERE PAST THEIR PRIME
BEAUTIFUL SMALL BUDS, FIRST PALE PINK AND THEN AT THE END PALE YELLOW
I LOVE THIS SHAPE, THEY NEVER OPEN WIDER THAN THIS
LOOK AT THESE STAMENS !!
HERE YOU CAN SEE MORE OF THAT BUSH WITH THE CLOSED FLOWERS
SOME OF THEM ALREADY HAD BOTTLES FOR THE BIRDS
ONE STEM LOOKED LIKE A COMPLETE BOUQUET
LOVE THIS COLOUR, WHAT A PITY THEY WERE PAST IT
PRETTY IN PINK
AND WHAT DO YOU THINK OF THIS DARK PURPLE ?!!! I LOVED IT !!!
SMALL BUT PRETTY
SOME OF THEM STILL HAD LOADS OF BUDS
I will definitely go back more often as they had so many other beautiful plants and trees and there are always exhibitions in the garden outside as well as inside.
Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your garden !
My fruits and vegetables are growing nicely, we have hot weather and the climate in the greenhouse is tropical but as long as we keep watering well everything is growing.
THE GRAPES ARE GETTING BIGGER, THEY WILL BECOME DARK BLUE, THERE ARE NOT BIG AND BEAUTIFUL BUNCHES BUT THEY TAST GOOD
AND SO ARE THE TOMATOES
MORE TOMATOES BUT OF ANOTHER KIND
AND THE BELL PEPPERS
AND THE COURGETTES
THE MAGGI PLANT (LEVISTICUM OFFICINALE) IF YOU LIKE TO MAKE YOUR OWN SOUP THIS PLANT IS REALLY THE BEST TO GIVE TASTE TO YOUR SOUP, IT IS A BIG PLANT THOUGH, UP TO 2 METERS.
THESE ARE THE LEAFS OF THE MAGGI PLANT YOU NEED ABOUT A FOOT OF A STEM WITH LEAFS FOR 2 LITRES OF SOUP.
THE SAGE IS THRIVING BETWEEN THE LEAFS OF THE YELLOW COURGETTES
I REALLY NEED TO MAKE SOUP SOON, LOOK AT ALL THE CELERY ! BUT IS IS JUST TOO HOT AT THE MOMENT !
AND I NEVER HAD BIGGER FIGS BEFORE BUT THAT IS COS OF THE HOT WEATHER WE HAVE BEEN HAVING FOR A FEW WEEKS ON END.
How is your veggie garden comming along ?
Thanks for visiting my garden !
June is one of the pretiest months in the garden here, not only the flowers are present but the green of the leafs is stunning !
MORE HOSTA’S, A BIT OF MINT AND DUCKWEED
EUONYMUS EMERALD AND GOLD
BEGONIA MUDDY WATERS AFTER THE RAIN
Have a great weekend all enjoy your garden and thanks for stopping by !
This morning when I was doing my round in the garden I saw a little white spider on one of my fuchsia plants, I think it is a crab spider.
CAN YOU SEE THE SMALL CLUMP OF BLACK ON ONE OF THE SMALL LEAFS ? COULD THESE BE HER EGGS ???? NORMALLY SHE IS WHITE BUT SHE CAN CHANGE INTO BRIGHT YELLOW ON A YELLOW FLOWER ! SHE NEEDS 10 TO 24 DAYS TO TURN YELLOW AND ONLY 6 DAYS TO TURN WHITE AGAIN.
