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?
