So the water is going on the garden tonight and in the morning, in the hope that it will not wilt too. As it has been so wet and cool, the roots of the plants will not be very deep, and will need time to adjust. The wind has done some damage to the tall plants, which are struggling to stay up.
The foxgloves have bent over in the wind.
You can see the cornflowers that have been flattened behind this flower.
As I step outside the laundry door, I am overwhelmed with the perfume of many plants.
The sweet peas are flowering at last, even though they were wind blown also.
The honeysuckle is flowering and smells so sweet!
And the carnations are starting to show their different colours.
Lots more colour to be seen, and don't be fooled, there are plenty of weeds in between. I need some serious gardening time very soon.
I received some seeds from a friend, that were not named, so it was like a lucky dip, waiting to see what they are! I think they are Love in the Mist, correct me if I am wrong. Thankyou Gay!
I have never been much of a geranium girl, but have decided, that they might rate some serious space in my garden, with their lovely flowers, in lots of different colours!
I planted 2 new roses in the front garden, earlier in the year, and have been rewarded with some flowers this week. It is a Gallipoli rose.
And a fuschia seems very happy to be in a shady spot under a tree in the front garden too.
I still have not got to the pots of cacti, waiting patiently to be planted in the new garden. But I am rewarded with a flower by one who was not waiting to be planted out.
I hope you have enjoyed my little bit of colour, as I am not sure just how long it will last, as the summer heat comes.
It has been a day of housework today, with some washing, cleaning, and dusting etc. Then it was Bible Study group, and then a Patchwork Committee meeting following that. I still some cleaning and sorting out of clothes to do in the morning, when I hope it will be much cooler. Then I am off for a few days away.
