Wow, I almost missed this bloom day, I've been so busy gardening for clients today, - but at this time of year the daylight is almost still with us (after 9pm as I write) so I popped out this evening to catch what's blooming in my garden.
Just to warn you that the photos aren't up to standard, as my Nikon D50 is on it's way out, and is stuck in automatic mode. - My spanking new upgrade to a D90 is winging its way to me by citylink as I write.
i'll start this month off with Roses. I inherited all but one of these when I arrived in this garden, so I don't know their names, - any ideas please let me know.
This is the one I know the name- Boule de Neige, - it was a reject from a client planting about 3 years ago, - it sat in a pot for about 14 months, - but now it seems quite happy.
I obviously didn't get the pruning right on these roses, - the single white flower at the front, is the root stock for the white rose in the background. - need to take out all those reverting shoots this autumn, but in the meantime, the flowers are pretty together.
and this Rose is borrowed from my neighbour.
I've also got several other types of Campanula flowering, Erigeron Karvinskianus, there are still some Aqueligias showing colour, My Paeonias have been a disaster, with only a couple of blooms, both of which were rained on before they really opened properly, but my success on the flower front in the back garden, are my peas, broad beans, runner beans strawberry and tomato flowers, which all herald food over the coming months.
Do your magic bees.
