It is a whole month since last time I uploaded a video of my garden, I am not sure where that month has gone, I have been so busy! My garden is growing like mad and with the fine weather we have had for ages, I need to be around watering and taking care of the garden on a daily basis. We have had a bit of rain the last few days, but it really doesn’t amount to anything, just enough to be annoying, just enough to keep me out of the garden, having to go inside during the showers - but I still have to water the pots and containers every day. This week the weather looks to get better, back to low to mid twenties and no rain at all it seems.
But enough chit-chat, let me present this month’s view of my garden and as always, if you have the speed for it, my films are always best viewed in full screen (button in the bottom right corner) but remember to change to 720p or 1080p, depending on your download speed. Here’s 4 minutes and 30 seconds of my June Garden, accompanied of some nice music (Sheep May Safely Graze by J. S. Bach).
I’m sorry about the colours going a bit strange here and there, I take my videos with an iPad mini and it isn’t the greatest technology invented for taking movies, but sometimes a bit better than my Canon camera as the lens for my camera doesn’t focus while filming. So until I get a new, better camera lens, the iPad mini will have to do. But some of the colours became really off this time, the dark pink colour of the chair at my seating area looks almost rusty brown! And the huge, tall hydrangea looks nowhere near like it did in the video – seems like dark pink is a bit difficult for that poor iPad mini. Anyway, here are a couple of photos of the hydrangea, just so you can see.
So that was June’s end of month view, my garden is groaning at the seams and you wouldn’t think there were space for even one single tiny plant – but there is! I got plans for bringing more plants in, more about that in the autumn I hope :-) Thanks to Helen at the The Patient Gardener’s Weblog for hosting this meme, if you head over to her blog you will find many more End of Month Views.
That’s it for this time, I got a lot of projects going on at the moment and I hope to be able to present some of them here next month, when I get my breath back again :-)
Take care, Helene.
