But my special tree (pictures 2 to 4) did do its stuff – this is the one that provided my daughter’s wedding bouquet – a fabulous scented mock orange.
The gardens were definitely not at their best this June. Weird weather, I suppose. The green garden might have been the most impressive, for once.
Otherwise, the newly established meadow area probably had the most colour. And very clearly the most bees – you could hear a constant buzz around this part! Plenty of other insects and butterflies too – definitely proved a success worth repeating next year.
I have given up trying to fight the alignment. Sorry. One day I will actually put in the time to learn this properly. It would no doubt save me hours in the end!
