The Tuesday View: 14th June 2016

I decided to get a shot of the view in the morning today, as (surprise, surprise) rain is expected later. The sun just managed to add a bit of warmth to the photo before disappearing behind thick clouds again!

I think this view of the rockery has changed quite a lot since last week, but then I know every centimetre of it! Almost all the poppies have gone over now, some have been removed too to give the other plants some breathing space, and the red rose top centre is starting to flower. The white peony is almost over, while the lavender is just showing a hint of colour. And my new rose (centre) ‘Gertrude Jekyll’ is flowering. The Centranthus ruber is in full bloom, but I am quite worried as I have only seen one solitary Hummingbird Hawk-moth on it so far. Normally there are several at a time throughout the day.

What changes have you noticed in your garden recently?

It would be lovely if any of you wish to join me in posting a photo of  the same view of the garden week by week. Just put a link to your post in the comments here, so others can also enjoy your view!
