Just a few photos from my garden this month.


So many flowers that attract the bees and flies – hoverflies, butterflies, iridescent blue and green flies.

And yes, a fewΒ of them are wild flowers which some people might class as weeds, but I’m happy to give them room whilst they provide such rich pickings for the insects.

    1. You don’t have any flowers in your garden? I know you have issues with your lawn. And the acorns. You should get rid of the lawn and create a lovely gravel garden with a bench to relax on. πŸ™‚


      1. We have some tulips, daffs and violets, as well as some flowering shrubs and a small herb area. At the front are three rose bushes that flower well too. That’s about it.


        1. Flowering shrubs are good. I like shrubs and perennials, that just do their own thing, except for an occasional pruning. I like roses too but find them hard work to keep looking good.


    1. I have no idea what you have been up to Jo, but I have found your comments in ALL of my blogs Spam! How weird is that? I think some of mine disappeared the other day too. I’m a little disappointed with the agapanthus this year, only two flowers. I think I’ll repot it in the spring or maybe even try it in the ground if I can make some room. I do like them, they remind me of Africa.


      1. I had my suspicions! Remember I mentioned Meg and spam? When I wrote the comments they weren’t visible afterwards. Nor did it say they would be visible after approval. I became the Invisible Woman πŸ™‚ Neat trick!

        1. Nice to have another Invisible Woman for company. I could do much worse! Sue Slaught has apparently had problems with her posts not showing up in the Reader so grateful for small mercies. πŸ™‚ I AM showing up in your Reader, I take it? Good job it’s just for fun.


        2. Sue’s site seems to have changed rather dramatically, maybe that is the reason. Yes your posts show up, and your comments seem to be fine now. I’m just behind in reading other blogs!


    1. Starting to fade a little, but still some colour (and the million nasturtiums!) but I am noting what is in flower when so next year I can try and plug any gaps.
