I apologise to those of you who were expecting a report on the cut flower beds today but when I wrote the post yesterday I had forgotten that Tuesday is not the day to join Cathy at Words and Herbs and show one view of the garden each week to see how it changes or not as the case may be.
Last week I asked you to choose which view of the garden you would like me to show each week; some of you decided to give a range of choices making it harder to decide which was the overall winner. Number 9, the view across the Large Island received most votes so this is the view I’ll be showing; I think it is a good chose as you can see plants from other beds too so when I want to focus on a particular plant there will be plenty of options.
Not much change from last week except for the blue sky; at last the forecast seems to be right and this week the temperatures have risen and will continue to rise into the 30’s°C and there will be no more rain for a while.
There is still colour from the crimson Lichnis coronaria in the foreground and the impressive white flowers of a Yucca, planted a couple of years ago, it now has two stems and a third off-shoot is growing well which I may try to remove and plant elsewhere.
It would be lovely to see lots more views so do join Cathy if you can.
The cut flower post will be tomorrow.
