last week which started badly and continued thanks to some rather indifferent, unsettled weather. I finally cheered up yesterday morning thanks to a lovely card I received which made me smile. It had also brightened up after a dull start to the day so I went for a potter round the plot to have a good look at everything and think about what to do this coming week.
Thanks to the snails I’m down to just three sunflowers, and this is the first flower on one of them.
I really prefer white Cosmos to this rather vividly coloured one.
How about this really lovely white Corn Cockle (Agrostemma githago Milas Snow Queen)
Over by the log pile the Rosebay Willowherb and Teasels are both starting to flower.
By the sweet corn I found this small, couple of inches high, plant with tiny yellow flowers growing which I couldn’t identify.
I posted the picture on the Friendly Gardeners group over on Facebook and quickly learnt that it’s Oxalis corniculata var. atropupurea, which most people seem to consider a rather invasive weed.
Happy gardening, and have a good week!
