English marigold opens it´s the first flowers:
We have lot of rain, what flowers I have look a very sorry state. I hope for some sunshine soon then they might bloom again.
Many rainy days here too but also sunny ones.
Garden looks greener and colors deeper at the evening darkness.
Because of anise hyssops and tomatoes in frame, the garden path is almost overgrown:
In the forefront runner bean´s supporters:
It´s a time of flowers.
This dahlia opening soon:
Himalayan balsam (Impatiens glandulifera):
And corn poppy - it is windy day, poppies stay in one place only seconds:
One more corn poppy:
As the weather is sunny and warm, no rainy like it has been last weeks, chilies are again outdoors.
More shadow at this side of the garden.
A plenty of different shades of green.
Golden balls are flowering soon. Normally they grow like a huge bush but at this year they seem to stay smaller. Maybe the frost at the last winter damaged them too.
Few flowers in the middle of green:
Squash in the frame grows well:
One fruit already.
Squash bed at the 7th of July:
Squash bed looks now quite different - huge growing during 11 days only:
(2 shark fin melons, 1 squash and 1 round squash)
I believe that the garden fabric has helped quite much with this fast growth as it has kept the temperature and moisture conditions an excellent for the seedlings. And of course, it has protected them from the slugs.
Squash in this bed:
Giant pumpkin and shark fin melon:
Squash in the frame:
(I thought before it was a butternut squash but I remembered wrong - it was a squash. Butternut seedling passed away earlier. Maybe too cold nights or too much cold rain. )
I have also few tiny shark fin melons; before I put one half-rotten shark fin melon to the compost and it seems that there were seeds alive. The seeds germinated in the compost and as I used that compost soil in the squash beds, I got those self-germinated compost seedlings to my garden.
Very spunky plant that shark fin melon.
Sister Herb.. You must have the greenest fingers ever. Your plants look so healthy. Butternut squash does not do well if they start too cold or wet. It is a miracle if I ever get much of a crop.
Honeysuckle has beautiful scent.
I forget what this is called.. But bees like it. There is one sitting on this bloom
And my day lilies which have come out in force in a large clump.. The orange ones seem most prolific.
So nice one. A few varieties of honeysuckle grows in the wild here but it´s also quite famous in the gardens. I should plant some too...
I think it´s a blue globe-thistle.
Bees in my garden love anise hyssop - as you can see:
My bee says to yours one!
Dahlia and mini rose:
Yellow dahlia is just opening:
Chamomile for evening tea:
Corn poppy and common soapwort:
Broad beans are flowering:
I have only few broad beans at this year, not enough for a bean soup but I grow them as I love their flowers.
They like climbing. Seems that I don´t use that clothes line for a while...
Tomatoes in their green world:
Your garden looks like a lovely green productive place... Here are some pics of mine. Mainly flowers.. And the stone things
And some hydrangeas
Lace cap pink one and purple one usual type..
And I planted a lavender hedge round the chicken run I think they like it
Nice flowers and interesting Stones. I got a hydrangea too.
I should find some place for it in my garden as it´s now in the pot.
