June

The sun is shining finally and the garden is looking lush – don’t you just love that word – ‘lush’ and ‘haberdashery’ are my favourites – but I digress.  Had to get the camera out and bore you with some photos.

junegarden (5)One thing that does love our ‘high up’ garden is the Iris – a new colour this year

Bicolour Iris

My favourite one

Iris in the Love in a MistI know we should cut back some of the Love-in-a-Mist (or Nigella)………

love in a mistbut then we wouldn’t get any of these

PoppiesIt wouldn’t be June without these self-seeders – last year they were smashed to pieces in a hailstorm

and – yuk alert

dog's tennis ball…….because I’m back outside, the dog wants to play ball.  You can see why I use one those plastic, long handled  ‘hurlers’ to play with him.

I hope the sun is shining on you.

Spidermum

I meant to photograph some poppies this morning but saw this spider in her web and took one of her.  It was only when I looked on the computer that I saw all her babies behind her.  Apologies for the quality but I hadn’t set up the tripod or anything.  If you click on it you can see the tiny ones more clearly.
