What June Gap?

I can never understand the references to the “June Gap”, supposedly the month of the summer in which nothing much is flowering and there is a lack of colour. Today (15 June) is more or less the centre of the month so I popped around the garden with a camera to record the lack of colour in it (not).

Hover your mouse over a photo for a brief description; click any photo to enlarge.

I didn’t take photos of a purple/red Fuchsia that’s starting to flower nor of the various Aquilegias that are starting to go over. I left the netting over a ripening strawberry.

All in all, not a bad range of colour and let’s not forget the variety of foliage colours and textures that give plenty of interest.

Nope, don’t think there’s a “June Gap.”
