Yes, the first lilies are flowering in my garden, just thought I would share that with you :-)
The Asiatic lilies are always the first one to flower, but all the oriental lilies have fat buds and won’t be that many weeks behind. Despite my absolutely tiny garden I have managed to squeeze in more than 150 lilies of various type and height, and I am sure I can manage to fit a few more. There will be more lily photos next month!
Sorry for being so absent on the blog, I am just so busy these days I can’t seem to fit everything I want to do into each day. I am spending as much time as I can every day in the garden, except for when it is bucketing down with rain, and in the evenings (read: nights) I am working on my latest book project. Deadline is in just a few short weeks so after that I’ll have a break – until next book project; I am making another book in the autumn, starting August.
But without further ado, here’s a few photos of what’s going on in my garden right now.
Lilium 'Orange Joy'.
Lilium 'Monte Negro'.
Rhododendron 'Dopey', surrounded by Fuchsia 'Annabel' and a pink miniature rose.
The first peonies are opening up, so far I have counted 51 buds which is exactly the same as I had last year. Paeonia lactiflora 'Sarah Bernhardt'.
The new clematis is growing well and has got more flowers since my last post. Clematis 'Mon Amour'.
The cream miniature rose is looking so beautiful, absolutely covered in buds.
Pink miniature rose.
Rose, 'Crimson Cascade'. The squirrels seem to finally have started to leave my roses alone, there are new leaves and buds all along the fence so in a 4-5 weeks time – a bit later than the rest of the roses – I will have my first flush of 'Crimson Cascade'.
There are lots and lots going on in my garden right now, but this was just a tiny peek. Got to get back to my book! Until next time, take care.
