The garden is a bit sparse of colour this month compared to last year this time. However, there are still bits and pieces in flower, mainly poached egg plant, aquilegia and a few others.
Last year by mid June the lupin and foxglove were already well into flower (and I had courgette flowers as well). This year many plants are late. To see my 2012 blooms click here.

|Above: Poached Egg Plant / Limnanthes Douglasii, (Hardy Annual) self seed freely and are welcome blooms this time of year.|
|Acquilegia - a plant I never remember how to spell its name (and always have to look it up).|
|I believe this plant is called Saxifraga Urbium, mixed in with some purple bugle and carex grass.|
|Centaurea are lovely vintage type plants.|
|I'm thinking this is a type of sedum, however, I'm not sure - anyone any ideas?|
