july garden

by greenrabbitdesigns


Well I have to be honest July has been a bit of a wash out and my poor garden has spent quite a bit of it drenched.

It’s not been great for the roses or poppies, they just can’t cope with that much rain and I have a greenhouse full of green tomatoes as there hasn’t been enough sun to ripen them, they are only now beginning to turn!

During the past two years July has been a lovely month here and August has been the wet month, I’m hoping this year after all the rain that August will behave itself!!

So I’m sharing some images of my garden that I’ve taken throughout the month on the drier days when I could get out there.


















Thanks as always for visiting.

Happy weekend & happy August, fingers crossed for a dry and sunny one with lots more gardening time! 🙂

It has been very up and down hasn’t it! I wonder if putting a ripe banana near the tomatoes will help them ripen. It’s still early, so I wouldn’t worry yet.

You have grown a lot of beautiful flowers despite the mixed weather, Vivienne! It has begun to rain here (cats and dogs type!) after a sunny start to the day…….it can only get better for the rest of August 🙂
Wishing you a happy weekend.

Hi “V” your flowers are gorgeous and so plentiful, love your variety! Mother Nature seems to be confused these days, here’s hoping we have a “real” summer for August. Thank you for sharing your lovely garden, xoRobin

I have to agree it’s not turning out the best of summers this year, we’ve not had it as wet as you but there’s been an overall greyness and it seems summer doesn’t know whether to rain or shine. I do hope we get the nice August we long for and it would make up for the nights getting shorter now. Lovely flower pics V to cheer us up 🙂 x
