A change in the weather with some welcome rain but still warm with some sun.
The garden is looking quite flowery especially with the annuals I have been growing for cutting. I am presuming the weather is having an impact although other things aren't doing so well.
I am now starting to see things I should have done but didn't. This Clematis was moved to a temporary spot when the fence was replaced. 2 years later its still there. I have made a tripod with the straight stems of Corylus contorta.I must move it next autumn.
This is Veronica longiflorum 'Eveline' a favourite perennial. It doesn't grow as tall as some varieties so no staking is necessary. Lasts 7-10 days in a vase.
I'm disappointed with the sweet peas, I have only had a few flowers. I am glad I chose these varieties though. Cream 'Jilly', pink 'Nelly Viner' with the dark flowers of 'Monty Don'. The latter were sown from seed I collected from last years plants. I find it especially satisfying growing from seed I have collected myself.
