I took pictures of my garden yesterday, Flag Day, for posting on Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day today. I am taking a break from blogging, reading blogs and visiting Blotanical, mainly due to pressure of work in the garden as I prepare for a large group visiting next week. But as the purpose of this blog is to record the monthly happenings in my garden, I will provide a brief picture for June, with no touched-up photos, no Latin names and just a few comments -- do ask questions if you have any! And do visit May Dreams Gardens where gardeners all around the world post their bloom day pictures, thanks to Carol!

The first flush of roses is fading. The David Austin is still holding it's own ...

The weather is 'perfect' today, but we've had a lot of rain and the weeds are horrendous, and the phlox has powdery mildew, yuck! I'm late with most of my garden chores, and only recently finished planting vegetables -- sowed parsnips in the new raised bed this week. I still have annual flowers to plant, so I must go outside and get busy!
I hope your Flag Day was joyous! Happy Bloom Day, dear gardening friends!
~~ I love reading your comments. I hope you leave one so I’ll know you visited!
I look forward to visiting your blog in return.
