With warm weather finally reaching the UK, I’ve spent as much time outside as I can savouring the fact I can sit outside without a wetsuit on or freezing cold.
I’ll get straight to the photos…
This sneaky Willowherb has popped up in the hedge between the gardens… Technically it’s in my neighbour’s garden and they are pretty even if they are rather invasive.
Delphinium ‘rose’ is stunning… this one I was unsure about when I bought the Delph offer; resultantly I gave two to my mum and kept only one to myself. Now I wish I’d kept more because it’s gorgeous and actually I’d say it’s purple rather than rose – matches my Erysimum perfectly!
Veronicastrum is also blooming; I love its tall, elegant spires.
The Sweet Peas are in full swing now and I have a gorgeous vase full… In fact I think they need watering now after a week of heat.
I’ve never had Sheep’s bit before – and never heard of it, either. Its blooms are very pretty and almost remind me of scabious.
Does anyone know what the final plant is? I was thinking Queen Anne’s Lace, but it doesn’t look quite right. It’s from a seed mix so I’ve no idea… I love Umbellifers though, so I’m thrilled to see it! It isn’t very tall but that might just be due to lack of sun.
