GBBD in Mid-June

Mid-June, the time of light nights and nightingale singing. It's also a busy time, everyday garden work is waiting for me at the morning. 
Despite on the Football World Cup (that started yesterday in Russia, particular several matches will be held in St. Petersburg) I prefer to live in my summer cottage, to garden or to knit sitting in the shade of a gazebo (sorry, fans, I'm not fond of football).


Rhododendrons continue their flowering, now the azaleas "Mandarin light" and "Northern light" blossom with bright flowers.




My new greenhouse turned out to be warm enough, so I constantly open the windows to ventilate it. There are Begonia red and white, Dahlias,
2 species of Pelargonium, Impatiens, Fuchsia and cuttings.

Pelargonium cuttings in bloom

Fuchsia cuttings

Flowers of black and red currant, gooseberry have already faded and berries began to ripen. Can't wait when they get juicy, to taste them.






















Hemerocallis popped its yellow flowers сlose to Physocarpus opulifolius 'Diabolo' with nice dark red leaves. I love Physocarpus for its leaves and cuttings that are well rooted at any time.



I've bought Petunias, that were named 'mix'. In reality they turned out to be dark blue and white. On the first photo is a white one, my favorite is this one, its petals remind velvet.


Last year when winter was awful I lost 6 clematises and now I grow new variety of clematis, it's 'Justa'. These days it put out first flowers:

 
Finally we have had rains and I'm not worrying about watering. The Canadian rose 'Therese Bognie' is in bloom, the very fragrance buds open every day, they last about 2-3 weeks and  are tolerant to rain.




What are your everyday works in your gardens in June? What is new in your garden in mid-June?

  1. I don’t blame you preferring to be amongst the flowers rather than football crowds.

  2. If I could sit in your gazebo and hear Nightingales singing I would join you in an instant. Watching football on TV holds no appeal for me.

  3. Nadezda, your garden looks lovely so much better than any football competition! your clematis and roses are splendid, I've never seen clematis in my life here. My Autumnn has been very rainy and the soil remains so wet I can't plant anything, this pisses me off because I really want to work in my garden! I hope things get drier as winter approaches. Have a great weekend!

    1. Oh, Manolo, your winter is wet and warm, our one was wet and icy last years. That is not good for plants anywhere. Clematis grows well in any tub or big pot in a verandah or greenhouse.
      Hugs!

    1. Спасибо, Надежда, дни на этой неделе обещают даже жаркие. Пионов у меня нет - им не нравится почва, могу себе представить, как они у вас прекрасны, розовые, душистые!
      Отдыхайте на даче, лето у нас недолгое.

  15. Apparently it's a big thing to have the world cup in your country, but I also would stay at home and avoid the crowds. Gorgeous beautiful flowers. Yummy looking gooseberry.

    1. Catmint, I did wanted to avoid the noisy crowds of fans in the city. I stay at the cottage in silence and flower fragrance around me.
      I'd read news about World Cup here and it's enough for me.
      Gooseberry ripens fast, I water them.
      Happy new week!

  16. So many lovely blooms, Nadezda! I just noticed this past week that my oldest clematis is dead, which makes me sad. I have no idea what caused it either; perhaps our winter killed it, too. I am not a football fan either, but I do enjoy baseball. Right now I'm watching more of it because it's too hot to be out in the garden:)

    1. It's a pity that your clematis is dead, Rose. Perhaps it was winter, I do think winter caused harm to my clematises as well.
      I know weather is hot in your place, but it's summer :-)
      Happy new week!

  18. Your flowers look beautiful! Love your gooseberries. Are they hard to grow?

    1. No, they aren't, Rebecca.
      It's enough to push a gooseberry branch in a soil in spring. It has no disease the only aphids.
      Thanks for stopping by!
