Here are some photos of my garden from a little earlier this year. I’m really pleased how the garden turned out this year, lots of pretty flowers and plenty of bees! I hope it’s as good, if not better, next spring.
These photos are more of an overview than my last flower post which focused on specific flowers.
The above image is of the bottom of my border. It’s predominantly lupin and sweet rocket at the end, with foxglove, red campion, grannys bonnet, hydrangea, love in a mist, and though you can’t really see them yet, my new guelder rose and spindle shrubs. Plus my bee box for solitary bees, and hidden lower, a ladybird box.
This one is from our oval flower bed. Salvia hot lips steals the show here!
Top of the border. Here we have wild teasel, foxglove, white valerian, and scabious. In the foreground is our little strawberry tree.
This is the bottom of the border viewed from in the meadow area.
Over looking the oval onto the meadow, with the raspberries on the left.
Everything got really big, really quickly this year. Did you experience this too? I wondering if it’s my efforts or the weather; probably the weather!
