Things are getting rather tall these days… the Aster and Aconitum are now taller than me, and the Angelica isn’t far off!
Work is needed here, a lot of things have died over winter… My Gauras, Verbena Hastata and Bonariensis, a few Bergamot, Scabious…. Oh, and the two black Hollyhocks! So in all there’s a lot of gaps which need filling.
And the Cherry border has been flattened by the big fat wood pigeons… I’ve had to place rose cutting around to stop them ruining my plants… Not happy. I will move the feeding station so there’s no reason for them to patrol.
Is this a Honey Bee?
The white Clover is blooming, but there’s far less this year than last… It’s likely due to the very hard winter and then very dry spring. We’ve lost a large area of it, but hopefully it’ll expand over the coming weeks.
Love this Salvia, it’s so nice!
This Nasturtium has been given its own hanging basket, I’ve never seen these deep red blooms before, but I think it’ll be very pretty indeed.
And finally, some shots of the Angelica…
For some reason it's very yellow when I thought they were meant to be creamy/yellow/white?
I do like the purple of the Geranium in the background...
