Just a bit of June in the garden

Here's just a little bit of what's going on in my garden. Despite being in the thick of winter with it's unforgiving coldness and wind, there is some fabulous things flowering and fruiting!

Lately we've lost some of our big trees and shrubs to old age. Natives don't last forever. We've squirreled some wood away in the shed, and done endless trips to the tip with greenwaste. It has left us with lots more room for new plants, it wasn't a hard decision to fill these gaps with fruit trees.

Miniature versions of citrus, apple and nectarine have filled in some of the gaps in the garden. They are fabulous for smaller gardens. We've even squeezed in a feigoa tree! Summer is going to be in her element when they fruit, she LOVES them.

I've pruned my roses, except for the carpet roses. They are still throwing out a few flowers, but have to get on to pruning those a bit. They tend to get a bit unruly if left to thier own devices.

There's a bee in there somewhere. I tried to coax him out, but he came straight out and flew away. I couldn't get a good shot of him.

Green Hellebores


We have oranges, and behind that, mandarins!

pink carpet roses

I love this colour of snapdragon, so gorgeous! The buds are a dusky pink,, then open to a soft pink. These come up from seed, so I hope I get some more come up of this colour.
