Early summer in the garden

Early summer has arrived in the garden. Every year, I think I should start a calendar of what starts to flower when - but never seem to get around to it. Do you do anything like it? A sort of 'flower clock'?

These are photos of what was in blossom in the front and back gardens at the Edwardian House Project yesterday, 1 June 2018.

A David Austin Rose - 'Lady Emma Hamilton'

A David Austin English rose, 'Munstead Wood' (I think)

Foxgloves - or 'Fingerhut' in German

Creeping thyme between the paving steps and gravel in front of the sauna

Memphis the cat inspecting the row of broad beans

Memphis the cat chilling out in the shade. What you can't see is that this spot is directly below the bird feeders...

White currants - that will turn light green/beige when they're ripe. And won't be spotted by the blackbirds!

Spot the cat. 

Lemon - yes lemon! This lemon was on the tree when I bought it from IKEA a few months ago. Lets' see if I'll manage to keep the tree alive and grow more lemons.

Now a look at the front garden

The cerinthe is a new plant for this year. I grew it from a pack of seeds, sowing it indoors on the window sill, in early March.
