Pictures From My West Cork Gardens In June.

 I couldn't think of much to write about so I have had a week blog break.  This morning I walked around the gardens and the flowers were displaying their Summer dresses in all their glory.  Thanks flower girls!

Outside the kitchen door.
Pink Cranesbill Geraniums flower and come back every year.
Valerian self seed and this one's growing in a mortar between the paving stones at our front door.
Osteospermums growing in pots.  I made lots of cuttings of these last September and we have many plants putting on their Summer floral display.

  7. Hi Briony. They are an old fashioned cottage garden favourite. They live for years. I love them.

  8. So sorry to learn that you have been suffering from blogstipation. Try "All Bran" for breakfast. That should clear the blockage. In the meantime, thanks for sharing your garden pictures - everything looks so nice and healthy.

  9. We all suffer from writers block from time to time YP. Sunshine and rain makes everything look nice and healthy. Free nitrogen from the rain.
