End of June garden
The last day of June, and this is what my garden looks like now. I have definitely seen it look better, and probably never seen it look worse... I blame it on the cold spring, and the (yet again!) wet summer.
Everything seems to be late this year... the roses, perennials, strawberries (the less than becoming blue netting is there to protect them from the birds... and the occasional rabbit) and definitely the veggies. But keeping in mind what all this looked like only less thank two short months ago, it probably is no wonder.
Now I am truly hoping for some warmer and drier weather, so that the garden can catch up. On the other hand, if it does not, the upside is that the garden is there to be enjoyed for longer... as long as it is 'done' by autumn and before the frosts set in...
Luckily the frosts are still way away (hopefully by several months) and there is plenty of garden joys to look forward to. I can hardly wait to be able to taste the sweetness of the very first strawberry.
On a different note; I understand changes are afoot with blogger, as of tomorrow. I am no good at keeping up with it, so should my blog disappear into thin air, all I can say is... it has been nice 'knowing' you.
