Borders looking good in the early June sunshine

Published on June 8, 2015, by in June, Through the year, Video.

May was a pretty dreadful month here in West Devon. There was a good week somewhere near the start, but it quickly faded and by the star of June we were still lighting fires in the evening.

Despite this (or maybe because of it) the growing through the garden seems to have been pretty robust, at least judging by the lawn which seemed to transform into a jungle every time you turned your back on it.

The weather the last few days has been much better and suddenly flowers are bursting into life all over.┬áIt feels like summer and that’s always a good thing.

The summer has been very hit and miss so far here in West Devon but everything is growing really quickly at the moment – more like a jungle than a garden in places!

Taming the orchard

Published on June 8, 2013, by in June, Through the year.

Picked up a cheap second hand strimmer off Ebay and with a new head it’s working wonders helping me get to grips with the wilder areas of the garden – especially the orchard which now has paths and spaces around the trees.
