Garden Update: June

Hello dear friends and blog readers!

It is June already, I almost can’t believe it that we are already in June… time flies so fast! I have come with an update from our garden because things are starting to grow fast around here.

I am starting with the flowers we have because they are becoming a beauty for the eyes.

Not sure what type of flower is this but it smells so nice and makes new flowers all the time.

The roses are blooming – we have 3 red roses plants, 1 yellow with red and one white – the white ones are not blooming yet but soon enough.IMG_1343-enjoysmallthings.com IMG_1344-enjoysmallthings.com IMG_1345-enjoysmallthings.com

Beautiful red carnations blooming – can’t wait for them all to be open, they have a wonderful perfume.

Remember our Growing Strawberries post? Some of the strawberries plants are starting to have runners so we decided to let them and just put the runners into small plastic cups filled up with topsoil so they will grow roots, once the runners are steady with roots we can cut them from the mother plant. We will see how many runners we will have, if they are too many we will start cutting them before they get to develop, in order to have better fruits from the strawberries we panted. (If you let too many runners grow the plant focuses more on the runner than the fruits)

We hope you will like this Garden Update for June, I will come with another update in July or somewhere in the second or last week of June depending on the developments in the garden.
