Gertie’s Garden Tardis.
Diary for June, 2019 …The First Two Weeks.
GGTardis now has two arches: and the pink Clematis has at last bloomed, [it took a lot of coaxing!] even more beautiful than ever before.
On the first two days of June I took pictures of the arches from various angles and it always looks pretty. Am pleased with its addition in GGTardis.
The Black Elder is flowering by the end of week one.
Purple Clematis bloomed behind Dom’s Shed as well as in the Holly Tree.
Even Dom was impressed by the magnificent show put on by Herb Robert!
Hoverflies were back in the sunshine, and a seven-spot ladybird.
Bees were still busy, and Blue geraniums lingered on.
A Fuchsia was coming back after the past onslaught of Fuchsia Gall Mite …
Roses were blooming all over the place … blooming lovely! …
Then it rained and the wind blew, for days and days, not sweet soft rain like I had hoped for, but heavy and brutal rain and nasty wind. The wind pushed this Peace rose into the tips of the spiky Firethorn Tree adjacent to it …..
… and it ended up like this, poor thing!
No worries though … there is sunshine again today, June 15th, and the roses are budding and will bounce back: [literally; it’s still silly windy ]
Meanwhile, Thornless Bramble vines are luxuriating in the first arch and the second arch is acclimatising to its place between pink roses and new Clematis vines: and the open dustbin has a well of fresh rainwater inside it
Still lots to do, a bench to move, spaces to seek out somehow, some slow-germinating beans to nurture, and an intrusive Cherry sapling to remove before it’s too big. Can’t get it tidy, but hey, so far, so green [pink, blue, yellow, red …]
Anne ….. June 15th.
