What a difference two weeks makes to the garden when it is hot and dry! This certainly show how valid this weekly meme hosted by Cathy at Words and Herbs is.
I missed last week’s View as I was at the Chelsea Flower Show, but I returned on Thursday to a garden that looked completely different; no longer late spring but now SUMMER with all that means!
The images were taken this morning at about 9 am.
Stipa tenuissima is already showing it’s golden tints instead of bright green. Some of them I will remove to allow the silvery plants to shine.
I was too slow, the Santolina is already flowering. At the weekend I bought a green Santolina (Viridis) to add to the plants that survive the drought conditions of summer.
If I make a half turn to the left this is the view:
Do visit Cathy to see her view this week and think about joining in, looking at the same view each week focuses the mind about how a planting scheme can be improved.
