Well, it all happens in June. In addition to an my wedding anniversary last week, this week I had a big birthday, and to cheer myself up I requested a macro lens as my present. And what a toy! My first foray into the world of macro photography was Wordless Wednesday’s Allium Hair, and today I’ve had great fun getting up close and personal with my June blooms.
In the interests of keeping this to a manageable length, I’ve decided this month’s edit should only include either plants I’ve grown from seed, or blooms bearing a ‘bug’. So I’ve started with my beautiful, soft pink Astrantia Roma, together with visiting bee.
Next my sweet peas. I’m growing more and more each year, and this year they’re all along the back of the Swing Beds, in pots by the front door and in the veg plot. I’m really only interested in flowers with scent, and this year chose Matucana
A couple of ‘greens’, Molucella laevis and Amaranthus caudatus ‘Viridis’
and Knautia macedonica
