is being provided by some of the annual flowers, notably the cosmos and pot marigolds.
The cosmos – white Purity, red Velouette and pink ones (variety unknown) – have done really well this year.
The second flush of pot marigolds have been smaller but still include the full range of colour combinations and variations ranging from zingy orange to creamy white.
This coming week, which looks like being breezy but mostly dry, I’ll be planting the rest of the bulbs having now finally decided where they’re going and I may even cut the grass paths one last time for this year.
Have a good week!
