A PEEK IN MY GARDEN

June is one of the prettiest months in the garden I think, everything is still fresh and a lot of plants are in bloom. We had quite a bit of nice Spring weather lately but at the moment it is raining and the rain is very welcome . Unfortunately some people in my country have had to deal with severe flooding cos of fierce thunderstorms, that must be horrible !
