The Garden in June

I've been spending the last week crocheting a sun hat, to protect my hair from the sun and shade my eyes, after a lovely sunny couple of days. Since I started the weather has taken a turn for the worse, but I have persisted and I only have three rounds left to do. Photos in due course.

This weekend we have planted out peppers and aubergines in the greenhouse, almost everything is now sown or planted. I officially have enough salad leaves to make three salads so far last week and more are coming! This evening we had a Greek salad with feta and olives, yum!

Because May was so cold, some plants did not flower until now, so the garden is looking rather lovely at the moment, with everything in flower at once.

In the front garden there are rock roses and roses:
Foxgloves, daylilies and hostas

On this side, needing a bit of a tidy up, but a lovely purple rose, lupins and cranesbill.
In the back garden the pinks are in flower and you can see the fruit cage at the back, as the raspberries and strawberries are ripening.

 and - OMG - we have apples. This is the Braeburn. I've never seen tiny apples before. I'm just so excited!

The vegetable garden is also making great progress, so next time I will show you how that is looking.
