Woo Hoo! Summer is here and there’s so much looking good in the garden this week. The biennials I’ve grown from seed are flowering their socks off and early flowering perennials are making their debut too. However the stars in my garden this week are a couple of shrubs. Viburnum opulus ‘Roseum’ and Lilacs of course. In our garden they are both at their peak right now.
It’s overcast again today but much warmer than yesterday. I’ve just had a quick trip around the garden with my camera to pick out some of the plants that are looking good right now. For various reasons I’m doing a lot more looking than actual gardening at the moment. Today I saw so much coming into flower I found it difficult to focus on just one plant, a colour or a theme for this blog post.
So I’m just picking out a few plants caught my eye.
A very kind lady has given me a chair for my studio. She apologised because the fabric has faded in the sun. I think it’s just perfect… especially with a vase of Lilac blossom and Snowballs. (Viburnum opulus ‘Sterile’)
