So whilst the wet weather is annoying for us, at least it hasn't caused any damage. That said it has caused some delays with the pond project, rain and cement don't mix well, rain and painting don't mix well, rain and... well you get the picture.
However the garden itself is looking great, lush growth all over and fantastic new culms on the bamboos. There has been enough warm spells recently to get things moving. With that in mind its a good opportunity to check whats looking good at the moment in the garden.
I'm glad to see some of the small statues in the garden finally going green!
Magnolia denudata 'McCracken's Variegate' has started to take off this year, with lots of strong new growth.
The Bamboos love the wet weather - new shoots on Phyllostachys aurea
This young Schefflera rhododendrifolia in full flush
Butter yellow new cane on Phyllostachys vivax 'Aureocaulis'
Brunnera macrophylla 'Jack Frost'
Looking forward to seeing the bloom on this Magnolia macrophylla ssp. Ashei as it hasnt flowered for us before.

The jungle looks very lush this year
Unusual to see cyclamen flowers at this time of year
A handy resting spot for a small fly on this Edelweiss
Hopefully we will get some more consistently warmer weather for the rest of the summer!
