I’m linking with Cathy at Words and Herbs for the weekly View of one part of the garden.
Today you can see by the photographs that it is now hot even with a cooling wind from the north east (today the wind makes it pleasant to be outside when only a week ago the same wind would send me scurrying for a fleece. The sun is much higher in the sky and it is warm earlier in the day; I’ve already started getting up earlier so I can be outside by 8am.
Sadly the Irises are coming to an end, but some are still producing new blooms; it has been a very good year for the Irises; I’ve enjoyed them very much.
The early summer bulbs are flowering including Dwarf gladioli ‘The Bride’ and Allium christophii. White and crimson Lichnis are flowering all around the garden, filling many spaces and adding dots of colour.
I dug out the huge yellow-flowered Phlomis suffruticosa because I found a pink Phlomis that I have been looking for almost since I started the garden. It has changed the views around the Large Island but hopefully it will settle in quickly and fill the space.
Will you share a view with us this week.
