I'm joining Riitta's Floral Bliss and sharing the highlights of our garden in June.
Some pinks were brought in doors for a small arrangement and the orange and yellow roses (below) are from a gifted bouquet.
The white rose was one in another bunch of roses given as a gift and grown from a cutting by my husband and was then transferred into a flower bed
Below philadelphus (mock orange), allium, pink patio rose and the climbing rose 'White Star'.
I got rather protective of my white delphinium and kept it in a pot in the covered yard before putting it outside with the other flowers in containers.

There are some apples (above) and pears (not shown) left on the young trees although the high winds earlier in the month didn't do them any good. We might have a few that will mature. We had some strawberries - even a few homegrown are special!
We still have two lemon plants that were grown from the pip of a 'giant' lemon. Below is the smaller one. They'll probably never produce fruit here in the UK, but were fun to grow. An olive tree is also in the covered yard with a peach tree, a pomegranate and other plants that need some shelter and warmth.
'Cardinal de Richelieu' gallica rose was transferred to a sunnier corner of the garden. The colour is amazing, but the actual blooms are small and it's not a prolific producer of blooms as it's still a young plant.
On the other hand,the shrub rose 'Brother Cadfael' produces masses of flowers and continues blooming until the end of the year.
There are many other varieties of flower I could have shown, but it's the pot of lilies that's the highlight in the garden at the moment. I haven't included the flowers growing in the front garden where there are other roses (Joie de Vivre and Arthur Bell, both floribundas). Lavender will be the next plant to flower.
