It came as a bit of a surprise seeing End of Month View posts appearing, as the month has flown past and the thought that it is July tomorrow is quite mind boggling. Admittedly I have been quite preoccupied with non-blogging things this month, but my rambles have still been frequent and my delight in the garden undiminished. I have even managed the occasional bit of maintenance – although a systematic and focussed programme of weeding is what is really required!
Anyhow, accepting that it is really the end of June, I am joining in with Helen the Patient Gardener‘s EOMV meme to show what my garden is doing at the end of this currently very hot month. I waited till later in the day to take photographs because of the bright sunshine and strong shadows so, firstly, the paved area:
Having shown a closer look at the paved area recently, I will gradually work through the other areas featured to give a more detailed picture of them. Next time it will probably be the streamside area and shrub border, shown here:
So that’s it for June, an end of the month overview of the main parts of the garden – an exercise I find useful as I can compare from year to year across the seasons. Don’t forget there is a map under ‘The Garden’ tab above, to show how all the areas fit together. Thanks to Helen for hosting – do pop over to her blog to see her own monthly views and find links to many others.
