We have now been able to restart normal gardening sessions on a Wednesday morning following recent easing of Government restrictions on numbers that can meet in outdoor settings.  

Clockwise from top left: Poppies, cornflowers and ox eye daisies are now blooming in large numbers; dappled light in the fernery; looking across the Meadow pond towards the shrubbery slope; the Lady Mayoress enjoying the Garden despite the weather; corncockle; cornflower; yellow rattle makes its first appearance; and a cheerful poppy.

June has been a glorious month in the Garden with many plants flowering and the meadow at its best.  One of the month's highlights was a visit from the Lady Mayoress, a great opportunity to exchange ideas despite the weather!
