Mid-June in The Fortnight Garden and time is starting to whizz past. We are nearly at the Summer Equinox. In my mind the sun is about to turn round and head south again, which is not a happy thought! But apart from that it has been a good week with a lot of very welcome rain.
1.Honeysuckle is flowering at the side of the house, hidden behind the weigela and the rose. It is just an ordinary honeysuckle, but so pretty in the half-light.
2.The Veronicastrum spears are standing higher each week and I am hoping that they will clump up over time. These are quite short plants, not the kind that grows to five foot and more.
3.Prince Charles is visiting! I think this clematis should probably be more abundant, and perhaps larger, but I am happy with what I have
4.The fruit continues to swell, promising me plum jam (plum crumble, plum cake and so on), quince any which way you like, and pears just as they are! This time last year the fruit seems to have been at much the same stage of development.
5.The Philadelphus is full of flowers and smelling sweet – very pretty.
6.But more than anything else little pleasures abound, allowing me to just wander around and enjoy the variety of colours and shapes.
And that is what I am doing in mid-June in The Fortnight Garden – not very much apart from enjoyin what I see and find! Thank you again to The Propagator for giving me this opportunity to share my garden.
