Welcome to my June garden. Although I haven't been posting for such a long time I have been busy in the garden and taking time to enjoy the lovely sunny weather we have been having this year. Watering copiously as there has been no rainfall since the end of February until a small shower or two this last week not enough to dampen the leaves.

Cornus Kousa looking lovely but it needs a more shady spot than I chose to plant.

Greenfinch rambler always looks lovely but is difficult to photograph to do it justice.

Albertine every wall needs an Albertine.

Vielchenbleu just beginning to flower and should be a wonderful show judging from the number of buds.

Prince Charles an excellent clematis.

Pink Fantasy

Rambling Rector what a picture.

Lots going on in the working area.

Even after off loading plants to my daughters and the occasional visitor there's lots left. Note to self stop potting things on when you haven't room for what you have already got.

Sweet peas for cutting seem to do well in these pots.

Thank you Mike for doing an excellent job of cutting the Box.

Don't these trees make such a wonderful backdrop to that side of the garden.

This is actually the vegetable garden but is the prettiest part of the garden and the most interesting as well as the most fragrant.

How lucky I am to have a garden and the good health once again to enjoy it.

After struggling to find time to post I found I was unable to publish through blogger help I discovered the message Javascript void when trying to press the publish button was connected to a download I did recently of Internet Explorer 9 I have removed this download so fingers crossed looking good so far as other changes have resolved.


  1. Your vegie garden is just wonderful and it would be marvellous to wander down there amongst those perfumed plants. Everywhere else is just looking so beautiful ... that view through the arch covered in Rambling Rector is picture perfect. Everywhere you look is a treat to the eyes!

  2. I love strolling through your gardens...that's a lot to water by hand..we have had zero rain for many weeks here and very hot. I really like your boxwood boxes!

  3. What a gorgeous garden! Loved the photos.

  4. Thank you Bernie for your lovely comment.
    Darla I sometimes cheat and use a hose pipe which also helps you to enjoy the garden as you make a mental note of jobs to do sadly the list gets longer and the time to do them gets shorter.
    Laurel I am so pleased I was able to take you around my garden what a pity I can't share the perfume with you but I know what a wonderful imagination you have so I am sure you are able to imagine it.

  5. Wow, I loved this stroll through your wonderful gardens. Everywhere one looks there is something to enjoy, down low, in the middle and up high. What a joy it must be to take your daily walks in all the beauty, surrounded by lovely scents.


  6. Wow what a beautiful stroll through your garden.By the way I make that note to myself every year about not growing so much and it never works. LOL! Your roses are just so pretty but I am really liking your Rambling Rector. What a beauty.

  7. I wish my garden was half as good as yours. Congratulations

  8. So pretty... I love love the English gardens and cottages, I always dream with a English country cottage and a lovely garden... something like yours! ;) So pretty!


  9. wow...your garden is just so beautiful. Thank you for showing it! It´s one of my favourit blogs!

  10. Loved my stroll through your garden.

  11. Magical Joanne! Absolutely stunning in abundance and beauty. I am so glad you are well too . . . to enjoy and help keep it so gorgeous and full. PS I watched "Under Our Skin" recently . . . scary and I am having to do less blogging due to the creepy spirochetes in my body. I do so miss visiting other blogs. I am trying so hard to get the right treatment. I am going to visit your Lyme site.

  12. Thanks for all the comments nice of you to pop over for a visit.

    Carol so sorry to hear you are still struggling but guess I am not surprised as I know you weren't able to treat in the early stages and so it becomes very much harder then. You will find a lot of useful links from my Lyme Disease blog but most importantly find a good LLMD through your local group. If you want to join a useful chat line then Eurolyme is well thought of in the lyme World by doctors as well as patients and there are many useful articles worth reading on Eurolyme in their files.

  13. My first visit to your blog. I will return. Your garden has some beautiful plants and the photographs are lovely. Sandra

  14. my word!!! your gardens are gorgeous!!! I am so glad to have stumbled onto your blog!I would like to take this opportunity to invite you to link in with some photos...either current or past (during the dormant seasons) to Flaunt Your Flowers on Friday with me. Many absolutely gorgeous gardens participate in this party, and yours would be a welcome visit for them all to make!
