So Lots is Blooming in my garden at the moment. I have worked very hard in the garden since I moved here 18 months ago and as you fellow gardeners know it takes a few years to get your garden how you want...but then again do you ever get it how you want it? There are always new ideas, new plants. new flowers we spot that we would love to incorporate in to our gardens.
Last spring I planted out a Buddleia (Butterfly Bush) and this year it has finally bloomed. It is the Black Knight variety and has gorgeous dark purple blooms. I love this bush as it is so easy to care for and the bigger it gets the more butterflies it will attract. The kids get excited once that starts to happen.
This clambering pink rose bush is actually planted in my neighbours garden but it tumbles all over the separating picket fence and looks so pretty. Its blooms have just began to open.
Thanks to my neighbour on the other side I have Marigolds blooming all over the place as he grew them from seed and very kindly gave me a tray. They all vary in colour from pale yellow to bright orange. The orange ones have got to be my favourite.
The blackberry bush has blossomed and is now showing the first sign of fruit...yummy for crumbles come August/September time.
The Bee's are loving my petunias and I love to watch them buzzing in and out of each plant. It is such a pleasure.
I have too giant pots full of these bright yellow lilies...They have just began to bloom and look stunning! My favourite in the garden at the moment.
We have had an awful lot of rain down here in the south and the garden is lapping it all up. My celery is a very thirsty plant and thoroughly enjoys the rain. I have some raised beds that I will be transplanting the celery into as I will be growing my vegetables in the back garden from now on instead of the lottie. But that's a whole other post so I'll come back to that next week as I invite you in to Mamas Garden.
So Whats your favourite Bloom in your garden this month?
