As I was outside photographing the fruit and vegetable for my other blog, I thought I would show the front circle of the flower garden, from a different angle to the usual 'through the window' one!
Quite a lot of flowers bloom as once in this garden, usually Spring through to early Summer. Most of those have now finished and are going into their green growing stage. Here you can see the final few peonies, white roses and geranium amongst other things:
Chrysolina americana, more commonly known as the Rosemary beetle which feeds on aromatic leaves such as Lavender, Rosemary, Sage, Thyme etc. Can't see any but shall watch out for them!
