For the last few weeks it seems the garden has been a sea of pinks, blues and purples with just the occasional dot of white, red or yellow. But the front garden is started to show a bit of variety, which is pleasing.
The day lilies have decided to flower in abundance this year, clearly refreshed by taking last year off:
We have an early rudbeckia, not one of this year’s but a survivor from last year which somehow missed getting pulled up with the others, and made it through the winter:
And there’s even a very shy self-sown nasturtium, though it is afflicted with blackfly and being nibbled by caterpillars, as always happens to the nasturtiums.
Meanwhile, the ceanothus is now covered in little berries, all ripening in the sun.
Hope you are enjoying good weather!
(This appears to be my 100th post, by the way, which is exciting!)
