June in the garden.

It’s been a lovely month in the garden. Peter has taken over the digging in the kitchen garden, so I’ve been working on the flower border and the lawn. I had to put off cutting the grass for a couple of weeks as the loveliest white flowers came up all over it.

Bobs and Fluff got in on the act when I was taking photos of the flowers!

The new flower border is beginning to really fill out, it really is looking a picture.

The lupins I grew last year from seed overwintered very well and have been flowering for ages, along with some chives that I found last year in the garden, which I split to make more plants.

An odd double headed shasta daisy appeared, too.

Pink daisy and more daisies with a curry plant.

I don’t know what this plant is: I think it was some bulbs Peter brought back from one of his trips.

The new herb bed is doing very well too. I was worried that, as it is in front of my studio which is in the shade most of the time, the plants would not do well but they have thrived. More chives with rosemary, tarragon, oregano and marigolds. The variegated plant is a Milk Thistle or Blessed Mary Thistle – it has a lot more growing to do and it’s already over a foot tall and a foot wide.  It’s a favourite plant of mine and I’ve have planted it all over the garden.
