Here's a little peak at June in the garden...
Left: The aquilegia / columbine are flowering and looking fab.
|Lots of of growth including the pink thrift / armeria. I always forget the name of the plant with the white flowers but they self seed around the garden and are a lovely plant.|
|Above: A glimpse of a little pond made from sinking a plastic container down into the ground, made by my nephew last summer. Plants like poached egg plant and geranium have grown around it. No frogs spotted yet this year.|
|Above and below: The Forest Flame /Pieris has gone from red to leaves looking rather peachy. Perennials are coming up including phlox, lupin, geranium, sedum and columbine.|
|The hosta is looking happy; the slugs and snails often snack on it at night but haven't nibbled to much - yet.|
|These super-duper, large flower stalks are over 6 feet tall - I saw them at Belfast Botanic Garden and thought they were wonderful. Not sure what they are. Anyone have any idea?|
Happy June in the Garden!
