Six Garden Flowers for Saturday

Anyone who watched BBC Springwatch last night would know that the South West of England was hit by heavy downpours. In fact, at times the deluge resembled monsoon-like rain. The garden’s white Roses and Delphiniums were heavily hit. Here are a few of the survivors and freshly-opening buds for my Six on Saturday.

The first summer-flowering Clematis are now appearing.

A Delphinium that just about survived the downpours.

Still keeping an eye on pollinators in the garden, I noticed a Hoverfly visiting this Verbena flower.

I feel lucky to have such a pretty flower garden to convalesce in after my operation. I can’t imagine how people have managed without access to a garden during the Coronavirus shutdown. I wonder if the experience will change housebuilders’ approach to garden space in future?
