Six on Saturday

As we head toward the longest day of the year things seem extra busy in the garden.

First this week the appropriately named green shield bug, here a pair mating on the red currants.

2. It is a while since I posted a photo of a bumblebee. Here a garden bumblebee enjoying the delphinium.

3. The day lily seemed to take ages to open but they are finally here.

4. It is pretty windy again today which I hope won’t affect the mange tout which are
doing nicely but not quite flowering yet.

5. Common spotted orchids in the wildflower meadow.

6. You may remember the red and yellow Aquilegia, well they have joined with the white ones. They are giving a great display of colour.

Thanks to The Propagator for hosting Six on Saturday

        I have wildflower areas scattered though the garden. But the one with the orchids is the largest and longest established and is about 50m square.

        We are lucky to have a large garden but sometimes the number of jobs to do can get a bit overwhelming πŸ™‚

      Thank you. I just hope people remember the solace they have found in Nature during these times.
