REETH COMMUNITY ORCHARD
Preparations are afoot to ensure that the Orchard is ready for the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations, with appropriate bunting, and patriotic colours in the newly-planted pots.
A perfect peony flower in the hot border, gooseberries are thriving with the mild, wet weather and the apple blossom continues to delight.
Right and below: a tangle of aquilegias provides interest with rich contrasting colours.
Right: a patch of thrift (armeria maritima) in the conservatory border.
Below: the wild-flower meadow is full of buttercups, red clover, yellow rattle and many varieties of grasses.
