garden photography: a rose garden

June is all about ‘the essence of summer’

(This month I want to see what summer means to you. Still focussing on the garden or parkland let your photographs tell me your story of summer-time wherever in the world you live. )

My first thoughts about this month’s challenge was that summer in a garden is all about scent. The long sunny days and warm evenings draw out the fragrance of scented flowers and always take me back in time to my childhood when summer was always hot and trying to sleep with the windows open was impossible while neighbours mowed their lawns and the smell of newly mown grass filled my room. I can’t replicate the fragrances on the blog so I shall seek out my favourite scented flowers this month starting with roses. Old fashioned English roses.

    • Oh, yes definitely in the right place. irises are very summerish and I love the cornflower blue ones. I have bright yellow ones! Our summer continues though the forecast keeps promising rain… cloudy, muggy and foggy at times, but warm. And the sun is shining today 🙂

      • Oh, do hush! I keep pretending it’s coming out from behind a cloud. 😦 Scarecrow fest tomorrow so sure to be a deluge… and then sun? 🙂 🙂 Pretty please. I was so happy for 2 days!
