Another month has disappeared and it is time to join Heather at Xeric style to show a long view of the garden.
Several things are different, and one thing is surprisingly the same, namely the fields beyond the garden that had been cut for hay last month are this month very green! We have had lots of thundery showers in the afternoons and sometimes during the night so that the garden is more colourful and the fields are green, long may it continue (although I think that is unlikely).
Above the upper drive border with behind the vegetable and cuttings beds.
Ten days ago the Verbena bonariensis was looking like dead seed-heads, with the rain they are full of flower again.
Under a cloudy sky the colours are much more intense.
The flowers in the field outside the garden have totally changed where there were poppies and Malva now there are wild carrots and Verbascum; I hope some of the wild carrot will seed into the slope!
Thanks to Heather for hosting again this month. Why not visit and see some other long views of gardens where often we only see close-ups!
