Open Garden, June 27th: Summer – greetings from the countryside

June was significantly warmer than the previous two months. Some heavy rain events did not make gardening easy, but the garden is extremely well presented. We have the feeling that many plants are significantly larger this year (possibly due to the wet spring).

In addition to a large number of roses and clematis, many summer perennials are already in bloom. Beard thread, scented nettles, knotweed, meadow buttons, widow flowers, cranesbills and the first sun hats to name just a few.

The prairie garden starts among other things with sage, thistles, catnip, meadow buttons surrounded by various grasses.


A real sea of flowers and a magnet for all kinds of insects and birds.
