Garden news: June posy

020614posy

Picked this morning. The variegate weigela isn’t mine. Part of it is poking through the front fence from next door; I had no compunction about snipping some off.

It’s amazing the difference that one warm day can make to the garden. Yesterday, Sisyrinchium striatum, Campanula persicifolia and various hardy geraniums all opened their flowers for the first time.

The ‘best’ foxglove I posted about recently is now taller than I am and easily the most splendid thing in the garden.

Those are pretty! It's amazing how suddenly everything has come into bloom. I'm waiting for my favourite scabious to pop.
With luck, a new flower every day at this time of year!
Lovely posy and other flowers, B. Yesterday's warm day certainly helped bring things on. Back to wet and gloomy today but it's quite warm.
Thank you!
Not wet here, but chilly after yesterday.

Another lovely icon, you have some great ones.
I especially love geraniums, and that is a beautiful blue one. We found a charming variety of ivy geranium this year with very small leaves and peach-colored blossoms for our front porch hanging baskets.
That sounds lovely!
