I’ve been getting behind on posting images of my garden – other things pop up for me to talk about instead!
So beware, there will be a fair few to follow, including a lot of images in this blog alone! Whoops he he he.
The following photos were taken a couple of weeks ago when it was raining heavily mixed with hot sun – it looked like the summer house and upper tier of the garden were on fire again as the rain was burnt away.
Herb Robert, I’ve waited for one to self seed for ages and I found one hitching a ride with a Chive in a pot that had been lost under a Clematis and Elder, so a very nice surprise to see it :)
Long grass… Sometimes I’m speechless how quickly it grows!
Water drop on Aquilegia
The same Aquilegia, it’s exploded this year! I have had it cooped up in a pot for years, it was planted last year and barely did anything but this year it’s at least trebled in size. Stunning!
Allium, I’m in love… I hadn’t bothered getting any more Alliums last Autumn, but since this beauty has been out I’ve rediscovered my love and these are the only two that have survived – either the snow or the Foxes, I don’t know, but the rest all seem to have disappeared!
A little fly on the Lliatris leaves sunning itself to warm up again after the rain.
Yarrow head (I think??) it was simply marked as ‘cottage plant’ but I’m pretty sure I recognise it from my pink Yarrow last year.
A Carder Bee on the American Wistera, the flowers have pretty much died whilst I was away as pete didn’t water it… Shame.
Raspberry flower buds, it’s now in flower, sadly it hasn’t done much, so I expect a minimal crop… Oh well, it’s only the first year I’ve ever had them, so don’t really expect much this year.
This little flower was in some hanging baskets when we moved in… Only I can never remember its name, but it’s self seeded pretty much everywhere!
A Geranium bought last year from Wilkos for 80p, reduced as it was half dead and the end of the season, so I’ve waited almost a year to find out what it would look like, as again the pot simply said ‘Geranium Variety’ hmmm, thanks, that’s very helpful Wilko!!
Dicentra, it’s coming to the end now, and has been rather damaged by the rain so this year it didn’t put out such a good show unfortunately…
I hope you enjoyed the shortish tour around the garden, not a great deal has changed since these photos, I’m still waiting for everything to pop, especially the seedlings I have growing, some have been planted and I’m waiting for them to flower:
Poppy (various varieties)
Verbena (various Varieties)
I still have plenty more that have been potted up and coming along nicely…
