A time for planting containers,
and hanging baskets.
Carrying watering cans back and forth to make sure they thrive.
Waiting for new plantings to bloom and hoping they are as lovely as you anticipated .
Watching life return to the pond...........sitting close by with a cup of tea, and just enjoying those moments.
Feeling of anxiety as the rabbit population increases each month...........but the kittens are very sweet :)
The scent of Angelica wafting around the garden for many weeks,
attracting dozens of honey bees, and much more.
But for me, the best thing about summer is waiting for the return of the bumblebee. This garden was originally planted for them. It is a garden of all seasons. A supply of nectar for every month of the year, just in case they come out of hibernation early, in the darkest days.
Happy summer gardening...........
