Finally some nice rain this morning. ❤️☺️💙
The last weeks have been really dry. The rain is highly appreciated 💙🥰
Peonies in the rain today! I got a Facebook flashback from two years ago that showed my peonies only just bursting from the buds, which illustrates how this year’s hot and sunny May in the UK has brought summer flowering earlier. I think this picture also convinces me, a bit, that as the peonies open fully they give a reduced PINK effect but their cream centres get a voice too. I am not perfectly convinced I have my peony staking perfect, despite heavy investment in some heavy peony supports. The investment was NOT wasted though, just a bit of moving supports to different peony clumps needed for next year…
Plant of the Day
Thursday 4 June 2020
A vigorous, thorny rambling rose, Rosa laevigata ‘Cooperii’ (Cooper’s Burmese rose), has large, single white flowers with a group of yellow stamens. The long trailing stems have very glossy foliage, this species can be slightly tender.

In an unexpected turn of events, today I gave a bumblebutt an impromptu funeral.
I was expecting to make a post about the flowers in my yard, but this little guy had decides to end his days in my radish planter, where I discovered him while weeding. What else can I do? Gotta respect the bumblebutts.
Dear little bee
May you rest well knowing you did right by Queen and Hive.
Buzz on, buzz on.
Trip to the market
Out of all of my rose bushes, this one has the most trouble with pests and rose diseases. You’d never know to look at it. Thrive, baby, thrive.
