June really is the month of plenty,
with a little bit of sun and rain and warmth everything is thriving.
Paul's Himalayan Musk is flowering it's socks off
and the spuds are up and tasting great!
The buddleja alternifolia has completely hidden the seat beneath it.
The perfume is delicious
but it's hiding the white foxgloves,
creeping into the honeysuckle
and throttling the climbing Iceberg rose.
This stone step is full of broken snail shells,
evidence that the thrushes have been hard at work.
The abutilon is another shrub that has grown rather out of control and needs to be pruned back after flowering. I'll take a few cuttings when I do so because it's prone to up sticks and die without giving me any notice.
the pond is alive with baby newts!
