This area is the sunniest part of the garden. It cannot be seen from the house so feels very private and hidden. I always wanted it to be surrounded by flowers but have always struggled with the bed in front of the hedge which is so dry. I am making some changes by putting in another small path for easier access with a pot of mint at the end. I am replacing the planting with drought tolerant planting.
The bed by the fence has been cleared of the roses 'White Gold' and 'Aloha', these have both been very disappointing. The sweet peas have done really well, they are coming to an end and will be removed soon. I am going to sow some hardy annuals for some early flowers next year.
Back to this year. These scabious are very close in colour to Aster 'Little Carlow'. One of them will have a new home.
Cosmos 'Dazzler' has done really well, better than 'Purity' which I planted in the dry border.
These are asters bought in the supermarket. Possibly something to grow next year.
The last of the Nigella seedheads.
Some of you might be interested in my other new blog called 'Cotton and Roses'. I am making and selling bunting, hearts and other cotton decorative items which will be available in my Etsy shop soon. The blog is charting my progress.
