That's it for this month's flower round up. What's flowering in YOUR garden?
This month's round up of what's currently flowering in my garden. My garden is humming with bees of all kinds - honeybees, bumblebees, wool carder bees, and various natives, as well as other beneficial insects and pollinators. I'm slowly weeding and planting, and have just put in some flowering annuals, but most of what's currently flowering is still perennials or self-sown plants, or those that I planted last season. Let's take a look at what's flowering now (and a few that flowered since my October round up, but have now just finished).....
A quick whip-round with the camera to see what's flowering in my garden at the moment. Flowering plants are not only pretty, but essential for attracting and feeding bees and other beneficial insects.
Last month was bee awareness month, with people counting bees, being encouraged to plant wildflowers and so on. Bees and other pollinators are very important for good production; some crops will not produce without them. My garden has been very neglected for most of this year, due to a multitude of things going on, I'm just starting to work on it once again.
So, anything that is flowering now is either a perennial, a weed, a vegetable that's gone to seed, or self-sown! Let's take a look at what's out there....
