Saying it with flowers

Happy birthday Nikki!  As usual I’m saying it with flowers on the plot, starting with the rose Pretty Lady which as you can see is blooming floriferously.

This past week has seen the first pot marigolds (calendula officinalis) Flighty’s favourites.

The red valerian (centranthus ruber) has about a dozen flowering stems and the dogwood (? cornus siberica) is covered in flowers.

    Wow! What a colorful selection of flowers! Roses seem to be doing well everywhere this year. The calendula are so pretty and play off well against the red valerian. I know we’ve had a talk about dogwoods before – yours is so unusual. Happy Birthday, Nikki!

    Happy birthday, Nikki. Goodness, it looks like it’s going to be a great year for Pretty Lady again, she’s such a beautiful shape too, she must bring you lots of pleasure with all those beautiful flowers.

    Your rose bush is stunning as usual – I don’t know what you do to it but it is obviously happy. Happy birthday to Nikki from me too.

    Happy Birthday to Nikki, and as usual your amazing rose is doing beautifully. It really is the most stunning thing. Does it keep going all season without stopping? I certainly remember seeing flowers much later in the season but I’m not sure if it’s continual or whether it has another flush later on. I hope you have a good week Flighty. CJ xx

      CJ thanks. It sure is. Just about, apart from from the occasional brief respite it generally keeps blooming well into autumn. Thanks, and you too. xx
