It’s that time of the week once more!
I’m a little late, in fact I didn’t think I had any photos ready for this post after being busy for the past couple of days. But I happened to look and there they were. I really need to get them posted otherwise I’ll end up further behind yet again.
So the garden has moved on from the orange and purple stage, the Geum have all but finished with maybe a promise of more blooms later. However, how there’s a shift toward yellows, reds and the butterflies.
Yes, I’m blinded by the fluttering at the moment and take very few images of flowers anymore!
The right border has passed its peak, but I hope the Salvia and Geum will at least produce more blooms later. However the Sea Holly, Thistles and Yarrow are providing colour and the Bees/flutters love both. Also, the Rudbekia at the very top of the border is coming into bloom shortly.
I couldn’t not have any Cosmos, so I’ve filled a gap with a couple, and I wish I had placed the white Delphiniums better, at the moment I can barely see them. Perhaps I ought to swap the whites with the blues for more effective colour combos.
Bees love Sea Holly, and you’ll also see a few species of Butterfly on them; I’m waiting for Small Coppers to arrive as Sea Holly seems to be the only thing that attracts them. I didn’t see any last year though so I’m hopeful for their return.
The Helenium doesn’t seem to last long, is it just me?
I really must take this to my parents… it’s difficult to part with though!
