Early summer in the garden

Early summer has arrived in the garden. Every year I'm thinking that I should start a calendar of what starts to flower when - but never seem to get 'round to it. Are you doing something like this? Like a 'flower-clock'?

These are photos from what was in blossom in the front and back gardens at the edwardian houseproject yesterday - 1 June 2018.

David Austin Rose - "Lady Emma Hamilton"

David Austin English rose - "Munstead Wood" (I think)

Foxgloves - or 'Fingerhut' in Germany

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

Memphis the cat inspecting the row of broad beans.

White currants - that will turn light green beige when they are 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...

Using coffee sacks to cover the log store. 

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 on the windowsill indoors in early March.
