June flowers

I have quite a lot of colour in my garden this June. This is mostly due to a punnet of gaudy rosebud primroses which are now unfurling. Gaudy they may be, but looking around I can see that the garden would be quite dull without them! There are also, of course, the stalwart pansies and calendulas, and the fleeting sensory pleasure of the wintersweet bush. I have a potted erica in a shady corner, and my fairy blush camellias have begun their flowering season.

Indoors, I have a bowl of pink fondant hyacinths, and several small pots of mini flowering cyclamens. (Cyclamens are one of the Good Things about winter, and have saved my sanity on many an occasion.)

As usual I'm linking up to Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day at May Dreams Gardens. Northern hemisphere gardens are looking gorgeous right now, and if you visit this post you'll find links to gardens all around the world.


  1. Love your primroses. They are very beautiful. Happy GBBD :)

  2. My favorite cyclamen are the little white scented ones. I always sniff around a display to find one to buy.

  3. I see you have lots of pinks going on. Pink is a favourite colour in my garden. Happy Bloom Day!

  4. Thanks for your comments everyone! Hope your gardens are blooming nicely too.

  5. I love your primroses and cyclamen! In the winter, I buy the potted primroses and line my kitchen windowsill with them, and I also force a lot of bulbs. It's important to have lots of color around in the wintertime!
