I took the photos below earlier this month in my garden, just at the time whem we were all thinking – what has happened to ‘flaming June?’
But it just kept getting wetter and I had to rush out whenever things dried up a wee bit. Then came days of high winds and everything flattened, especially the lupins.
They continue to fight back though and new spikes are coming through.
It looks like we will have a bumper crop of raspberries and Tayberries this year, if all the rain we’re getting doesn’t bring the dreaded botrytis fungus. The pears which were growing got blackened in a May frost – such is life, I can’t see any pears on the tree now.
If you click on these photos it’ll take you over to Flickr and you can click on them again to zoom in to see the details better.
Since I took these photos I’ve been out cutting back and dead heading and more roses are coming out.
We’ve been promised decent weather over the next few days, although wouldn’t you know it – it’ll be much better over in my beloved west of Scotland where it’s supposed to reach 25 Celsius.
Apparently that’s 77 Fahrenheit, I’m just glad that I’m not with my brother in Holland at the moment because it’s going to be seriously hot there. Global overheating is definitely in mainland Europe.
