So far this summer the weather has proved to be quite wet.
A lot of things in the garden have gone quite rampant.
We have more of this dark red poppy than ever before. We think it would be nice to harvest the seed and have a big cluster of this particular poppy somewhere in our garden. I have saved some of the poppy heads so maybe, just maybe we can do something about this.
These shasta daisies were planted last year and have only just come into bloom in recent weeks. They are making up for lost time as they are there in abundance.
We have found them to be a good vase flower as they last quite well.
From where I sit in my bedroom using my computer I can see this lovely hollyhock plant.
The image is probably more blueish than the real colour, which, to the eye looks a very dark chocolate brown.
It is the dark, dark colour that fascinates me. Not many plants with flowers like this.
