This wee fellow was patiently waiting for his turn to get to the feeder.

Philadelphus   –   Mock Orange.  It is coming into bloom now, late, as everything else in the garden this year. Disappointingly, it wasn’t even worth waiting for as the blooms don’t have anywhere near as nice a scent as I have known it from other shrubs of that species. The question now is keep or replace….seeing that the scent is what I wanted it for. It isn’t exactly covered in bees, either….

Roses   –   I am pleased to see them finally opening their buds. They are so much happier since I dug them out of the flower bed and put them into planters, not to mention the added benefit of beingable to walk right past the blooms with their lovely scent on the way to the door 🙂

Broccoli   –   Sorry, I couldn’t resist when I found this in my vegetable patch in spite of mice decimating the young plants. It is ready for the pot, I think! Could have done with a bit more … but there is always next year 😉

Pinks   Leave a comment

Dianthus   –   At least I think that is what you call them, other than pinks. They are a bit thin on the ground in my garden this summer because I split them last year to make more and they haven’t had time to fill out. The front flower bed should smell lovely next summer 🙂 The flower heads of the big carnations are much more spectacular but until I have figured out how to photograph them properly, these little fellows will have to do.
