Now our summer is starting at the end of May. I have a confession to make – I am not a rose person!
I find they need too much care and fussing to get the most out of them. Kourosh looks after our roses and I just grumble a bit if they are not perfect.
Veilchenblau gets a special pass from me as I find it so special. Perhaps because it only flowers once in the season that I appreciate it more. Also the bees adore the flowers.
When the self seeded Verbena bonariensis is flowering throughout the garden it means that we are in mid summer.
