It was a lovely sunny day today, with a cool breeze, and I actually enjoyed my least favourite garden/household chore – tidying the front hedge and sweeping the drive. I much prefer being in the back garden though. And looking at this view!
The lavender in the foreground is now flowering and the Lysimachia and Golden Rod (which will probably flower early this year) have got so tall. But let’s zoom in to that fluffy white blob in the distance, just to the left of the Acer…
The Goats’ Beard is flowering! And with the strong breezes we have had, that and the giant Miscanthus left of it have been rustling and swaying like mad.
If I walk a few steps down the path I can show you the view from a slightly different angle – the pink rose at the top of this part of the rockery is now flowering too.
Here is a closer shot…
No name I’m afraid. It was here when we came, albeit rather neglected. It flowers on and off all summer.
Finally a longer shot. If you saw my vase yesterday you will see why I made the choice to use Lysimachia and Alchemilla together. 😉
If you would like to join me with a regular view of one part of your garden, please do!
