A June flower calendar


It was my intention this month to photograph my garden and post a new flower picture every day. But its already the 4th and apart from the strawberries on the first, I haven’t started. However, after glancing through the recent pictures I have taken, I’m going to give it a go.
Today’s flower is Helianthemum nummularium “Hadspen apricot”, one of a group known as rockroses or sunroses-Helios being the Greek God who drew the chariot of the sun across the sky.

I love these little fellows- I have several in the garden, which may become obvious in later posts. They are small and compact, apparently untroubled by pests and diseases and flower reliably every year for about 3-4 weeks.

  1. I have some of these guys! Mine are leggier and the leaves are more silvery than yours here, though.

    Over on my blog you commented on how much space we have in our garden compared to yours…all I can say is what we lack in culture and history we make up for in space out here in the American West! 😉
