It’s hot! A few summery days lie ahead of us before the next thunderstorms are forecast, and I shall make the most of the time I have available to do some weeding and cut back a few things. As you can see in today’s view, everything is growing like mad and getting greener and greener!
I think some of that Lysimachia needs to come out before the clematis obelisk on the left gets swallowed up! (The bell has almost disappeared already!)
The acer is the star this week. It is a lovely fresh pale green at this time of year…
And if we look through it we can see the first of the irises…
And look, a peony has opened! It looks a bit like how I felt this lunchtime in the hot sun though!
The lovely aquilegia below (‘Rose Queen’) is actually not quite within the Tuesday view, but it is one of the first to open. The others are almost all mixes that have spread around over the years and are only just starting to bloom. They seem taller than ever this year!
If you have a view of your garden that would like to focus on and share through the seasons, please join me and my fellow Tuesday View crowd and leave a link below in the comments.
