that is plot pottering, for an hour or so in the mornings the past couple of days as it’s been sunny and very warm with temperatures reaching nearly 30C/85F by mid-afternoon.
This is another pink-rose cosmos with a single stem nearly six feet high and a handful of flowers at the top. Judging by the height, flower size and darker shade surrounding the boss of yellow stamens I’m pretty sure that’s it’s a self-seeded cosmos bipinnatus Gloria that I grew last year.
A few California poppies (eschscholzia californica) have germinated and grown over the past few months and are now flowering.
Sadly it looks like this is one of the last of this years rose Pretty Lady blooms, which has been flowering almost continuously since mid-May.
It looks like being sunny and very warm again today but thankfully tomorrow should be cooler, but rather wet.
Happy gardening, and have a good weekend!
