Summer Sunshine!

 Some more photos of what's doing well in the month of June with some small additions! Above is a patio rose years old,always performs when I treat it with Roseclear at the first sign of black spot and conditions have been very  helpful to this lately!
A new purchase,a few plants of Busy Lizzie,a summer staple,never under performs!

Monkshood,hosta,day Lillie's red hot pokers in background( though these are yellow)!

A Mothers Day rose that came from my late Mothers garden ,lots of bus doing great!

Best buy ever, outdoor gerbera,the orange is now 2yrs old and I sourced two golden coloured plants recently,these will flower into October!

The lone primrose vialli in the centre,like a lipstick! Leaves are very scarce as are flowers this year?

First lily to bloom this year from a few bulbs bought at Bloom festival last year,the red spider has machine gunned holes all over the plants!

This is a lovely geranium called Francis Headley,lots of flowers with the great sunshine we have been having!

A little non flower item,watermelon,great thirst quencher on a hot day!

More pots,yellow marguerites and begonias.

Finally,a bunch of lilies I found on top of a parking meter in the city centre,obviously forgotten,they came home with me,I had the pleasure of the sight and scent of them for two weeks!


  1. Everything is looking gorgeous, Kathleen. I thought those monkshood were delphinium, until I read the text. And your hosta is huge! Enjoy.

  2. What lovely plants you have, all looking very colourful. Monkshood is such a pretty thing.

  3. How big the hosta is!
    We have just small ones. It maybe takes several years to grow like that.

    1. Poirot,I think it may be due to the variety of a particular hosta that determines the size of the leaf,though I could really divide each one up as the spears appear if I wanted to reduce their size I suppose!
