The past week it has become hot! Summer arrived with a bang and not gently the way I would prefer. I’m joining Cathy at Words and Herbs to show the same view each week to be able to see the changes (or not) that occur during the year.
Tuesday view 28th June 2016
Lychnis coronaria looks a little scorched, I don’t think there will be many more flowers now.
Left foreground, Lamprathus spectabilis threads its way the silver foliage of a variety of Artemesia (I think)
An unnamed Hemerocallus with huge yellow flowers is responding to the weeks of rain by performing brilliantly
This Hemerocallis in the background behind the Cotinus is in the Upper Slope Path bed
Yellow Hemeraocallis given to me as a gift when I bought a lot of plants from them
Allium sphaerocephalon returns each year and will even seed around, the one of the few Alliums that will do that here; with Schizachyrium scoparium Front right foreground.
The sky is an even more intense blue this week, the silver foliage plants are sparkling except for the Lychnis which doesn’t cope as well with the heat as you’d imagine.
Visit Cathy to see who else is sharing a view this week.
