New Growth – June

Unfortunately we currently have absolutely no internet in the village so I’m afraid I’m going to be absent from my blog for most of this week. I’m only able to post this one by visiting a local restaurant that has free wi-fi. Luckily I’d already prepared a gallery of pictures ready to post! We’ve been told that an engineer should be out by Friday – hopefully they’ll be able to fix it.

These are all shots taken around the garden using the camera on my phone (Samsung Galaxy S4). The flowers are all gloriously in bloom, creating an absolute riot of colour. There are lots of lupins, delphiniums, clematis and irises, plus many others. I’ve not included too many shots of the roses as I shared a gallery full of those only last week, just a few new ones that have now begun flowering.

Our fruit bushes are also all developing nicely. The blackberries are in blossom and the blackcurrants beginning to ripen. The raspberries and redcurrants are all still green but should begin to ripen soon, whilst the apples, pears and damsons are all swelling nicely.

  1. Those photos are sooo beautiful!! Thanks for sharing!
    I’ve never seen apples, pears, or raspberries growing, and it’s so amazing to see them like that in the photos!

    • Thank you – I’m very glad you like them. We’ve always had lots of fruit bushes – we eat a lot of fruit in our family so it makes sense to grow our own! I love to watch the changes in them as the year progresses.

    • I’m glad you like them. With the glorious sunshine we had here last week (and being unable to get online) I spent many enjoyable hours sitting among them. 🙂 Thanks for visiting.

    • Thank you. 🙂 One of the first things I do everyday is go into the garden and see if there’s anything new I can photograph. I’m just glad that even with my proper camera not working I can still get some nice close-ups using my phone. 🙂


    • Thank you! The internet in the village is always bad but I can usually persuade it to connect eventually! This last week has just been frustrating – though it did give me an opportunity to catch up with my reading. I’d downloaded several books onto my kindle that I hadn’t even looked at over the past few months. 🙂

    • Thanks. I love watching the changes as the year progresses. 🙂 The internet took longer to come back than we expected and its still rather dodgy – unfortunately that’s kind of normal for this village!
