We have reached the middle of the month. Many flowers, such as irises, have already disappeared and the mock orange no longer spreads its perfume but there are others comming to replace them: lilies, poppies, honeysuckles, etc. Have another look to see what nature with Ann’s help can conjure up in our garden.
