The growing season in Orkney is about a month behind further South in the UK. However as the days extend to almost no darkness at all everything begins growing very rapidly! You can almost SEE the plants growing.
I gave up on vegetables etc a couple of years ago. It's too much work for me now. But I delight in the flowers in the garden. And there are some fruit bushes too - gooseberries and blackcurrants!
Anyway here are some photos of flowers in June in my walled garden on Graemsay! The old barn in the photo above is a lovely backdrop to the garden. Sadly in disrepari now, but in the 1970s there were barn dances in the upstairs loft of this building!! The stuff of legend from what I hear.
Thalictrum starting to flower....
Hope you enjoyed the photos. It cheers me up looking back on these posts in the depths of Winter!
