I’ve plenty of catching up to do at the moment… so here we go!
We’ll start with some of the Geraniums in bloom at the moment (well, almost all of them, ‘Orion’ has since opened and I haven’t included Thurstonianum). The first photos are of an unknown Geranium given to me and this is the first year it’s bloomed. I don’t think it’s a macrorrrhizum or phaeum as its leaves are quite different.
Finally here are another unknown Macrorrhizum, Herb Robert and Geranium ‘Ballerina’.
Herb Robert has made a very impressive bid to take over the world this year with its tiny little blooms and lovely ferny foliage.
It’s easy to see that I do like my Geraniums, perhaps because they’re very good ground cover, and also have good height to them and often copious blooms so I can bring some indoors for vases.
I also have a number of Astrantia although only the one is doing very well… I’ve decided it’s probably time to move the two plants in the Aster border as this is their 2nd year having few blooms after having a good show in their first year! I think that perhaps the large Flat-topped Aster nearby is taking too much water and they do not like dry conditions.
Here’s ‘Major Roma’ my one mature specimen:
Have a great Sunday – I hope the weather is better than here where it’s grey and very, very sodden. Although the garden does need it after two weeks of hot, dry weather.
