A Quick Breather
Those days really are creeping by at the moment… Who’d have thought the last week would’ve gone so quickly?
Miscanthus sinesis ‘flamingo’ is a new addition, and once the ground is soft enough for me to work I’ll attempt to find it a home.
Gaillardia is also new, it was cheap as it’s somewhat damaged – I initially assumed it had bloomed and was dying. But actually there are buds beginning to flower.
The Geranium given to me in July (?) seems to be happy and is already expanding with some leaves growing a good distance away from the crown.
A forget-me-not has a few blooms on it… brightens up and otherwise shady area.
Chives have another flush of blooms
Gatekeepers are still out and about, although not quite in such high numbers as a few weeks ago.
Dianthus bought so long ago now it’s a hazy memory continue to bloom. Very nice!
The Gaura on the bottom appears to have too many petals… Seems like it’s two blooms in one…
The chopped Salvia is also on its second flush, sadly the other plants are not doing quite so well and I don’t think they’ll put on another show for me.
I checked up on the caterpillars… One’s disappeared, I assume it’s gone off to pupate.
And this is the most exciting of the moment…
It’s the Tuberous Thistle, I had assumed I’d missed the blooms for this year as I didn’t plant it until quite late. But both plants now have buds on them… I’m hoping they’ll be out when the Commas emerge!
