My Garden

My small suburban garden…

Dragonfly Days…

I love hazy summer mornings lazing around in the garden. At the moment, the butterflies are still enjoying the buddleia, although bees remain conspicuous by their absence this year. I’ve just started to see a few Southern Hawker dragonflies making an appearance.

The begonias are now almost all in flower and although the majority of those which survived the winter in the shed are red, at least 1 white and 1 yellow are now in flower.

I was lucky enough to be given a fuchsia (Tom Thumb) as a birthday gift and it’s now in bud for the second time, which is fantastic as I’ve never owned one before. The pink geraniums are also flowering and looking lovely.

The chives have begun to bud and a few are about to flower, so very soon there will be pretty white flowers along an otherwise bland wall. The mint in the wall planters (which replaced the failing lobelias) are thriving. Long may it last…
