English Gardens In June

Posted By Happy Homemaker UK

Gardens in England
are at their most gorgeous right now
with their first summer blossoms of the season




These photos are from our village fundraiser garden tour,
private homes opening their gardens to the public






See the orange oriental poppy peeking out?
My neighbor recently called it a 'floppy poppy' 
which made me laugh

- all photos by me -

I always like the smell of lupins. They're not sweet but they remind me of when I used to play in my grandmother's garden.

Thanks for this lovely post! I SO miss the English gardens. It's one of the few things that I am very nostalgic for. Picnic's on the the grass after it's been freshly mown ~ delicious. English grass is soft and wispy, Florida grass is too spiky to sit on, not to mention crawling with ants and other bugs ~ yuk. Although i do love living in the sunshine State! I'm sure I'll adapt...eventually... hugs, Sally xx

Thank you so much for stopping by and welcome to my blog!!
German gardens, homes, villages and towns too are at their best in summer with geraniums flowing out of every window and flowers saying hello to you from all over!! I like the look of the English gardens you have pictured in your post, though some flowers look completely new to me.
