The garden is looking nice at the moment. A few issues with smaller plants behind bigger plants, but can look at that for next year.
The rose campion has flowered. It will have little bursts of small pink flowers through Summer.
The foxgloves have finally come out. A bit behind others in the surrounded gardens. But better late than never. The hollyhock next to is also set to flower.
The roses are doing well.
The sweet peas in the hanging baskets are flowering nicely.
I have put more food out to attract in the finches.
There has been a good variety of birds in the last few days, so my efforts aren’t being wasted.
The wildlflowers in the border are bringing in the bees. The poppies in particular are seeing lots of visits.
The garden centre had a lot of dehydrated lavender selling for the 99p. With a few days watering it’s already looking better. I think I’ll aim to nurse it back this year then add to the front garden next year. I have one patch already and it’s smelling great walking in.
While a few things are dominating this year and my height order in the borders is a bit of a mess the wildlife coming in is much more varied than last year. So I feel my hard work over the last year, much of it started during last years 30 days, is starting to pay off. The garden is gradually becoming a better habitat for more species.
