Early June.

So this post was meant to be published last week, but i never got around to doing it! I have another post in the pipeline with more current pictures, but I wanted to quickly post these anyway - mostly so I have a record of my fantastic rambler (it´s filipes Kiftsgate) in 2018.

We have a very bad drought around here - it has rained twice since the beginning of May. While many other plants in my garden suffer, the roses have mostly been doing fantastic.

 Same rambler, different location. This one was quite sick last year with mildew, but not even a touch of it this year.

 So that I have a record of the year in which we fixed the roof of our barn. This is a bit of a longer story to tell. Maybe in another post dedicated to the subject - once it´s done.

This rose is always fantastic. No the chickens won´t probably notice.

Lavender "river" not yet in full bloom. 

The veggie garden is doing quite well this year despite the drought. Now I´m very grateful for this rather wet piece of land that we have! When we moved in seven years ago we seriously considered adding a drainage system in the back part of the garden since it was so wet. No more! Climate change is real.

Your vegetable garden and lavender river are impressive. Well everything here is. Bruno looks happy frolicking in the background. And your Kiftsgate rose is simply stunning. What a breathtaking entrance it makes to your home. I wouldn't be surprised if passersby stopped to take photos of it.
