The nasturtiums that are scattered around the plot are now starting to flower but I’ve a lot less plants than last year. Here are orange and red ones.
There aren’t as many sunflowers as I had hoped for either, and the tall singles are anything but with the tallest being below waist height with correspondingly small, palm sized, flower heads as seen here on the left. The other one is an Autumn Beauty which is taller, about 4/5 feet, with a dinner plate sized flower.
Neither types have really germinated or grown well due to the cool, dry and dull weather that we’ve had for much of the year.
There was some rain during Friday night, along with a lot of thunder and lightning, but I’ve not been to the plot since to see how everything is doing. Thankfully next week looks like being cooler, around 20C (70F) at best, which suits me as I should be able to do some now much needed plotting.
Have a good week!
