June has seen a mix of weather to start with. Wet and windy (very windy at times) has given way to hot hot hot. Gertrude Jekyll is a s usual the first rose to open. Soon have this trained all over the front (west and south facing) entrance wall
Have extended the lawned areas (or in other words tamed the field) even further now and added two more apple trees and two Rowan saplings to line the grass pathway.
Beds not really springing to life yet - other than the Iris which has been superb (split it into three after last year) and the Antirrhinum (snap dragons) which have over wintered. Peonies (Sarah Bernhardt) just starting to flower - smell gorgeous but must remember to move the one from the woods this time (way too shady once the trees have leafed)
