Garden colours in the beginning of June.

20 comments


I always think that June and September are the best time in my garden. I enjoy the vibrant colours of the early summer flowers against the fresh green foliage of the plants that will flower later on. I have been especially pleased with the Geums and the Dianthus so far. They didn’t like the wet and cold of last summer so their flowering periods were few and far between. They are flowering so well at the moment, enjoying this lovely prolonged spell of warm weather…..
Geum Blazing Sunset…

Dianthus Valda Wyatt…

Old cottage pinks..

Geum Blazing Sunset, so tall and the Hostas putting on a lot of growth….

Geum Queen of Orange…

And finally this beautiful Delphinium ‘Magic Fountain’.

My garden is loving the warmth as much as I am. Isn’t it a treat to feel some warm sunshine at last.

Lots of lovely colour there HB, love the poppies and the geums in particular. I'm loving this sunshine, not keen when it gets too hot but these last few days have been prefect for me:)

I could not say the same about weather for us here, it has been a very cloudy week, and cold too :(( the roses are still sulking, all the buds are tightly closed only about 4 brave ones have opened so far, hardly any colour to take picture of..but I am looking forward not backwards now..it has got to get better.:))

Thanks Louisa, Cinders, Paul and Michaella. Would YOU believe it.... T bought a new 50 ft garden hose on Saturday to replace the leaky one we have had in for heaven knows how many years and we laid it up the sides of the garden to the greenhouse tap. Then he decided yesterday to trim the hedges and cut through the blooming hose behind the copper beech...Arrrrrh.!! I don't bladdy belieeeeve it!!!!!

Wow HB - your garden is wonderful, so much colour! Love those Geums. What is the plant with the deep purple petals and large globe in the centre? Its stunning!

All the rain last year and the snow this year must have helped to really load the soil with water. It's usually so dry as soon as the sun and wind gets on it for a few days. I think that's why everything has grown so well this year Hywel. Thankyou.

Beautiful - not surprised this is one of your favourite seasons - do you have an Open Garden day? I'm sure other people would love to come in and enjoy it.
What is the shrub with yellow pea like flowers? Have seen it before but can't remember the name.

11 Jun, 2013

 

Hi Steragram. The shrub with deeper yellow pea like flowers is a Canary Broom and the paler flowered one is a Cytisus Allgold. My garden has so many steps from the front to the top of the back garden that it's not really suitable for anyone with any walking problems so I haven't thought about having an open garden day. Thankyou for your lovely comment.....

How absolutely lovely, HB. I love the astrantia and alliums and the poppy seedhead is a fabulous photo. I feel some jewellery coming on... like the opposite of the start of a headache, if that makes sense!

12 Jun, 2013

 

Thankyou very much Tb....I love the Alliums too...would that be the opposite of an ice cream headache...they are the only ones I get now...lol
