Strawberries in June
If it's June in England, there must be strawberries!
These are strawberries from one of the six plants that I bought last year. They have been prolific this season.
And, last autumn, I potted up about 30 baby plants from the runners from the original plants. This spring, I planted them into an old rubble pile in the back garden.
The plants have lots of lots of little strawberries, ready to ripen. Where's the cream?
We've also had a lot of success with the potted roses this year. There's something in the climate this summer that favors the roses. The entire neighborhood is filled with roses, and you can smell the lovely scent hanging in the air when out walking.
The potted plants in the back garden are just starting to bloom and fill out. In a couple of weeks, they will be a lot fuller and more vibrant, but it's always interesting to see their progress over the summer.
