Our Garden in Early June

So far, this year’s weather has been fairly good for the garden. A mild winter and spring, a very warm spell in April, and a wet May has resulted in vigorous growth and fairly early flowering.

Self-seeding Welsh Poppies are everywhere this year

Fragrant rose ‘Princess Alexandra of Kent’

Lupins have done especially well this year

Ladybird Poppy with its distinctive colours

Rose ‘Tottering Gently By’

Globe Artichokes, grown for fun rather than eating
