Gardening with ME: what's flowering in the garden in June


I've not been up to blogging or gardening recently. The ME has been bad and I've needed to rest. I was able to get out into the garden and take some photos on the weekend, so I thought I'd just post some pictures of what flowering in the garden in June.

In the Long Shady Border: Amsonia tabernaemontana (Eastern Bluestar), Primula beesiana, Astrantia 'Hapsden Blood' and Polemonium caeruleum (Jacob's ladder).

And Geranium nodosum

plus Geranium nodosum 'Clos du Coudray'

Overview of the Kitchen Garden, the Broad Beans flush with health & flowers, with Geranium 'Ann Folkard' in front.

Sun lovers, Salvia x jamensis 'Nachtvlinder'

Allium cristophii (Star of persia)


The Herb Border includes Salvia nemorosa 'Caradonna', Allium atropurpureum and the seed heads of Allium hollandicum 'Purple Sensation'.

The Herb Border earlier in June with Allium hollandicum 'Purple Sensation' in full flower, plus Allium schoenoprasum (Chives).

Looking through from the driveway.

In the Alpine Wall, an alpine Oregano (I need to find the label!).

Sisyrinchium 'Biscutella' (Blue-eyed grass 'Biscutella').

Campanula poscharskyana (Trailing bellflower).

Next to the Obelisk, Dianthus cruentus (Blood pink).

Looking up through the arch at Rosa 'Seagull'.

Hopefully my health will improve enough soon that I can actually do some gardening, not just photograph the garden. Despite the ME, the garden has plenty of flowering interest in June. And I do get to sit in and soak it up, which is no small pleasure.

  1. So sorry to hear that you have been going through a bad time, hopefully you will be able to do a little gardening each day again soon. We are in the same situation, the doctors still don't know what is wrong with my muscles and my husband is having to go through more cancer treatment so we are both only able to do half an hour at a time.
    You certainly have lots of beautiful flowers in your garden at the moment, they must give you a lot of pleasure when you sit and rest.

  2. The garden is looking lovely, and I'm glad you're able to enjoy it – even if you can't tend to it at the moment. I hope your health improves soon.
