June 25th 2013 Hurrah for summer!

25 06 2013

This morning the weather forecaster talked about high pressure. I’m sure he did and it definitely wasn’t a dream! And today the sun is shining and there is real warmth in the air and the garden has a feeling of summer. There are roses in full bloom, lavender now beyond a blue haze, kolkwitzia and buddleia alternifolia, iris and geraniums, peonies and astrantia. Sprinkled everywhere are nigella from white through pale blue to navy making a carpet of colour in the beds. And best of all I have dug the first potatoes, there are broad beans ready and the first mange tout have set. Hurrah for summer!
