Mother Nature's Colour Palettes - June in my Garden

June is my favourite month in my garden! 

Usually the roses steal the show in June. But this year they were far less spectacular because they had to be cut back in preparation for the cavity wall insulation in July. In a way, though, this has made me take more notice of the other flowers. I've never really had time to give much thought to the colour planning of my flower beds. In my usual happy-go-lucky (aka slapdash) style, I  tend to just throw things in wherever there's a gap !

But Mother Nature has come up with some splendid colour schemes without my help so I've created three very different colour palettes from them which you are welcome to use if they appeal to you -

I love that first color palette, very soft and lovely.

I think that one is my favourite too, Jayne - and did you notice the good old British summer sky, full of rain clouds, in the background? :D

Hi Crystal - thank you :)

The long cold spring does seem to have produced my colourful and vigorous plants in my garden this year. If only I weren't sensitive to the pollen!
