taken around the plot this morning.
I’m surprised to see these linaria maroccana Fairy Bouquet that have appeared over by the log pile. I know what they are as I grew some in 2008! They’re a pretty little snapdragon-like flower, each one only as big as a little finger tip.
The annual cornflowers (centaurea cyanus) have started flowering. They’re mostly blue but there are a few pink ones as well.
Plot neighbour George kindly gave me this genista a couple of years ago which is happily growing, and now flowering profusely, in the top north-east corner.
The lamb’s ears (stachys lanata) that I was given I replanted in the square planter. I took all the dead and tatty leaves off when I did and now it’s looking good, and growing well.
I can’t resist showing some pot marigolds, which are now flowering all over the plot. My favourite one so far is at the bottom of this photo.
I moved Fox Junior, the plot guardian, earlier in the week. He’s still sitting under the rose Pretty Lady but now he’s looking towards the log pile and pond rather than up towards the roadway.
Have a good weekend!
