It was a difficult decision which flowers to chose for this month’s Bloom Day, as there is so much flowering in the garden at the moment.We have had quite a lot of rain during June and July, which has made the flowers grow rather tall, now we have hot sunshine which some of them appreciate more than others.
Zantedeschia beside the alpine scree, the rain water all soaks down to where I have planted this. Even so, this plant is only half the size of the one in the bog garden.
A lovely red astilbe, also beside the scree, enjoying the rain water which gathers here.
Japanese Iris ensata in the bog garden.
Someone has been eating my lovely white Iris ensata just a bit further along!
Alstromeria in the border by the field.
All the Day Lilies ,Hemerocallis, have started flowering, I will just show a few.
This and the previous one are in the border by the field.
Rosa lancastrience reminds me of my roots up in the North West of the country.
A lovely little primula on the alpine scree, this one doesn’t like the soil that most of my other primulas grow in.
Crocosmia Lucifer has started flowering up by the pond.
Clematis durandii has scrambled up into a buddleja bush next to it.
All the Hydrangeas have started flowering and will carry on for months.
The same with all the hardy fuchsias, this one is Whiteknights Blush.
I love Rosa glauca in the corner of the back garden, such a simple little flower with the most beautiful foliage.
More red astilbe looking happy next to the wall outside the scree.
Philadelphus Belle Etoille perfuming the air all around it-heavenly.
Primula florindae in the bog, but not doing as well as Monty Don’s planted in ordinary soil, maybe I will have to move mine!
St. Rita’s Rose looking beautiful in the sunset border.
…….surrounded by Geranium Rozanne.
A daylily adding a bright splash of orange to the sunset border.
Hypericum Hidcote which has formed a really large bush and will need cutting back soon.
Little Erigeron karvinskianus still flowering madly at the foot of the dining room wall.
Spirea but I have forgotten it’s name! This is the bush where the little birds hide from the sparrowhawk when it comes visiting!
Mimulus has gone mad round the pond, it is everywhere!
The white hydrangea under the kitchen window will now be flowering until the frost.
Rosa Shropshire Lad always looks beautiful.
The flowers of Santolina Lemon Fizz now take over from the foliage which has been holding my attention for months.
Stipa gigantea sparkling in the early morning sunlight.
Some people moan about the amount of rain that we have in this country, but where would we be without it? We certainly wouldn’t have a garden full of beautiful flowers during the warmer summer months and the bees and butterflies wouldn’t have a ready supply of food to keep them going. I welcome the rain, as we are on a water metre and watering the garden would be impossible, as long as it doesn’t overdo it, as it keeps the garden going in flowery mode until the temperatures drop a bit in September.
Thanks must go to Carol at May Dreams Gardens for hosting this monthly meme, please pay her a visit to see flowers from around the world.
