My Garden in June

I’ve been out in the garden weeding, pruning, mowing and training. It’s all growing so quickly at the moment, and it seems like every couple of days, there are new things blooming or needing dead-heading or looking after.

Project Garden continues! We’ve been out in the garden this week, planting up some shrubs that we recently bought, including Callicarpa Profusion which we recently spotted and absolutely adored.
