Mid June – and like The Propagator my garden “has been running away from me” too. Weeds everywhere but particular the vegetable path. So I am not going to show you that – just some pretty flowers (and a few insects) instead!
First this week a pink geranium – sorry don’t have a name, with a visiting hoverfly (Rhingia campestris).
Next one of my favourite June combinations – buttercup and red campion – these are both flowering under the hedge.
Delphiniums are another summer favourite – just coming out now.
The garden is busy with bees at the moment – always a joy to see. The white tailed bumblebees seem to particularly like the lupins.
Sitting on the lupin leaf I spotted this lovely blue damselfly too.
And finally this week a red and yellow aquilegia. The white tailed bumbles also like this one.
