Another GBBD has arrived; each seems to arrive so quickly now that there is so much activity in the garden. Thanks to Carol at Maydreams for hosting this meme. Pay her a visit to see what’s blooming in early summer or early winter (depending on which hemisphere) around the world today.
At last it’s hot, well today it is hot but the weather has been anything but consistent, rain, wind, cool nights, more wind and yet more wind that has been late May and up to now in June. But the days are hot enough that when I want to sit outside during the day I am so grateful that the wisteria is filling out and the front terrace is in dappled shade. A bonus is that the wisteria is flowering again profusely; I always think that the first flowers of spring are larger, but no, this year there are long racemes of delicately perfumed blooms hanging down under the canopy of shade giving foliage.
The colours in the garden are heating-up; from pinks and purples to oranges, yellows and crimson. I spoke about the gold of the small island a couple of days ago but gold and burnt orange aren’t restricted to that bed, they creep into the most surprising places, especially the Californian poppies which seed themselves charmingly into all the right places.
But there are so many blooms demanding my attention, click on the image below to see all the blooms in My Hesperides Garden today, they’re not all orange!
