It’s definitely flowertime in the garden alas the rain and the wind can ruin it in no time, the weather is very unstable, one moment it looks like Summer with a blue sky and sun, the next the sky is grey and we get lots of rain or worse ; a thunder storm. So we enjoy the moments we can and when the bbq falls into the water we move to the kitchen and bake our meat in a fryingpan :D….

June is usually the best month for the garden here in Belgium, everything is lush and fresh and blooming but not this year, we have had torrential rain and flooding in many places and gardeners and farmers are getting desperate, we urgently need sun and warmth here !!! Personally I may not complain, we had no flooding , everything is growing like mad but the blooms have rotted away, pitty but it could have been worse. Here are a few pictures I took when we had a bit of sun.
ROSA GUIRLANDE D’AMOUR, A LOVELY SMELLING RAMBLER, TODAY IT LOOKS HORRIBLE, THE BLOOMS ARE ALL BROWN
ROSA FRANCIS E. LESTER, ALSO WITH A GORGEOUS SMELL, A RAMBLER I KEEP SHORT AS IT GROWS IN THE MIDDLE OF A SKIMMIA BUSH
A LOVELY BLUE CLEMATIS
THIS IS A YOUNG FATSIA, THE LEAFS ARE GREEN BUT THE SUN WAS SHINING ON THE PLANT SO SOME OF THE LEAFS LOOK YELLOW
THE HOSTA’S ARE DOING GREAT, THEY LOVE THE WET COOL WEATHER
MY FIGS ARE GETTING BIGGER AND BIGGER
THE BEGINNING OF A SEMPERVIVUM BLOOM
THE FERNS ARE THRIVING AS WELL
