A dull cloudy day, still no sign of rain. I think I may resort to a rain dance soon............
Containers are doing well. Feeding with comfrey tea on a weekly basis suits them ..........
the added bonus is that it costs nothing, just a little time and a peg for your nose :)
I love Gazania. I bought these from a neighbour. She had grown too many and was selling them. I bought 18 plants at a ridiculous price, virtually 'give away'
Hemerocallis Stafford is my favourite daylily. I could not capture the true colour. It is a beautiful deep red with a yellow throat. It produces an abundance of flowers each year. I would not be without it.
My favourite plant combination at the moment is white musk mallow and a cerise salvia. I would like to say I planted them together. The salvia is not hardy so I did not expect to see it this summer and the mallow is a 'self seeder'.
Hydrangea paniculata grandiflora has lovely lacy blooms.
Sometimes the best way to view them is flat on your back and that is what I did to take this photograph.
The flowers this year are magnificent, the size of a football, and lots of them.
Back to the garden, so much to do, so little time :)
