Here we are again me dears with another catch-up post. (One more to go, and then as long as I get September's in on time, we will be sorted.)
Our red and yellow bed is doing well.
Most of the Penstemon last year seemed to be red, so were moved this Spring. More pinks than I thought. Hey Ho !
Crocosmia 'Lucifer' looking fab:
As is our fave Dahlia 'Bishop's Children' seedling:
Joy of joys! - a new bench.
Coreopsis grandiflora "Early Sunrise" in the foreground.
The main border burst into growth this month:
Nicotiana mutabilis and Cleome hassleriana:
Perovskia atriplicifolia “Blue Spire” (Russian Sage):
Scabiosa - 'Blue Jeans':
Polemonium caeruleum (Jacob's Ladder)
Verbena bonariensis "Purple Top" seeded itself all over:
We added 30 varieties (!) of Fuchsia to our garden this year - and now have more pots than you could imagine;
but we found a place for them all somehow.
Agastache rugosa f. albiflora 'Liquorice blue':
Our not 'Midnight Blue' Lupin:
Salvia patens “Patio Deep Blue”
Dahlia 'Early Bird'
Brodiaea laxa “Queen Fabiola”:
Regal Pelargonium 'Lord Bute':
Regal Pelargonium 'Aristo Orchid':
Pelargonium “Bullseye Cherry”
As I said - we have a lot of plants in pots !
Lilium (Tower) "Honeymoon"
Nicotiana sylvestris - smelling gorgeous!
To close this month, we have another fascinating creature that neither of us have noticed before -
Synanthedon myopaeformis (the Red-belted Clearwing moth):
There we are, me dears.
Its been fun looking back;
next up - August.
