My Garden This Weekend – 21st June 2015 Solstice Delights

I’m off today on a short garden visiting odyssey so there won’t be the usual weekly update of things in my garden. Instead here are some pictures of what is looking good in the garden I managed to take yesterday afternoon between rain showers.

I am thrilled with the impact of the Geranium palmatum at the top of the garden.  It seems to have gone mad this year and you have to battle your way along the top path.  I suspect the amount of growth is because we had such a mild winter the plants didn’t get knocked back.



So those are my solstice delights.  I will be back later in the week to hopefully share with you some images of the amazing gardens I am visiting down south.

    Your garden is looking so lovely! I alway plant my onions on the shortest day, which makes harvesting and planning my crop much easier!

    Hi Helen – Shortest day here so dark at 5.30pm. Very chilly 11deg outside. Definitely won’t be having a mid-winter swim this year. Last year I had one and my shins were so painful! You have one for me on the other side of the world! Bulbs coming up and pansies and poppies doing well! Veg growing well for healthy eating. Enjoy your holiday and looking forward to your photos!
