Gertie’s Garden Tardis.
Diary for June, 2019 …The Last Two Weeks.
Feverfew has dominated the back room of GG to the extent that I am now ruthlessly pulling some out as it overshadows other struggling growth, for example some new cuttings of Sage that I have rooted, which is growing pale and leggy because it can’t reach enough sunlight!
When the Sage bush has grown big and strong in the sunny bed, I shall fully cut down the old one which is taking up space in the shaded, raised bed.
An orange Rose from my friend, Maria, has been the star of the month … am hoping that I can keep it growing
. White Foxgloves from Jane have been itinerantly successful all around the garden as well, and the Beeblebums love them.
Deep pinky reds and mauves predominate …
Culminating in an abundance of tall, unfettered red Penstemons! here’s one!
I am belatedly repotting and moving strawberries around to the sunshiny parts of GGTardis: and little roses abound on Blue Hill.
I have not seen many butterflies, but did come across this critter a few times!
It flew away and I was surprised, as usually I see them creeping about!
Colours are pretty in the sunshine, and there are fascinating shadows too.
The blue Geranium, carried on rather nicely!
Onion buds are filling up … and a third Beansprout is now vigorously growing to catch up with its mates …
‘La pièce de résistance’ is a Bird House made by our friend, Bobs, which he renovated and gave to me for my birthday.
P.S. I once saw a Hedgehog and bought some dog food, but I haven’t seen it again, even though something is eating the scattered dog biscuits!
The scent of Privet has taken over where the vanillary waftings of Clematis Montana have faded away.
