Short on time to post today so just linking up with Amy at Love Made my Home with a five June flower pictures from my garden and beyond.
This is bush is called Philadelphus I think or mock orange though I think we called it Bride's Blossom in Northern Ireland. Whatever it is called, it smells wonderful and this year is magnificent. Last year the man we get to cut the hedges trimmed it at the wrong time and we had few flowers, but I managed to save it this year and it's better than ever.
My oriental poppies are also in flower. They last a day or two before dropping their petals at the slightest sign of wind or rain, but are spectacular when they are out. This year I have noticed that there are two different colours, one salmony pink and the other paler. I'm sure the plants were identical when I planted them. A mystery.
I don't bother much with pots of annuals as they need too much watering but I make an exception for these Livingstone Daisies which have an unspellable proper name beginning with M. These were my mother's favourite and I plant them in memory of her. They are a bit sulky, only opening when the sun comes out, but look so cheerful when they do.
Will be back later this weekend with more news from a busy week.
