June 2nd, 2021

Sundays come and Sundays go, - two of them have passed by since I last wrote here and we have left May behind as we say hello to June -  but they have encompassed busy weeks.  Or lazy ones, - or a combination of the two!!!

A warm day, and the shady spot in the back garden was enticing this afternoon...

I am an early riser and am out before breakfast to enjoy the coolness of the garden - pull a few weeds and relieve the plants of the blooms that have wrinkled up overnight after a hot afternoon.....  I am reminded of the mornings when I used to slip out of bed and sometimes spend an hour before Charles would rise and call from the window.  Lovely memories....

Now I take my coffee with me, and Bruce (The Dog) and neither of us are as energetic as we once were, but content to wander a bit and tidy up the beds.

The peonies are out,  the lovely floppy white ones and the sweet pink clusters, - the cabbage roses wander over the gate that leads to the garden and those beautiful purple clematis are just starting to bloom.  June is such a dear time in the flower beds that line the lawn.

                               Today was very hot, and I sat in the shade at the back of the house, 

                                                                        with a cold drink, 

                   and thought about how very lucky I am to be surrounded by such beautiful blooms

                             and how much my dear one would have enjoyed the afternoon......

Charles, the flag and the garden gate...

Similar weather here, but a rather sudden change after a May that was more like March. The early mornings are the best times. Everything I know about gardening I absorbed from my father and quite frequently I feel as though he's there looking over my shoulder.

Not enough rain here even though winter is here. I love the sound of your garden.

A wonderful morning post from one who treasures the beautiful things in life...good memories and floppy flowers (and otherwise). Yay for June!

So many of your flowers already in bloom. Here it remains cool, but the snow is gone from my gardens. I like the photo of Charles and your memories of times past. Any forsythia this spring?

Few things are better than an early morning in the garden.

Finding our small spots of peace during our days is a true blessing.

Your garden looks fab. I too am an early riser and sit outside with my coffee before my husband rises. Such wonderful times you spent with Charles and such loving memories you share. Thank you. xx

How quickly the summer is zooming by! Hope all is well with you!

So lovely to read you go out into the garden early morning, I like to do the same but at the moment in our new home the garden is just grass and a hedge, so reading about yours was lovely.
