It was windy…

most of last week, with Tuesday being particularly bad as it rained most of the day as well. Thankfully when I looked round on Wednesday morning I found only minor damage apart from two toppled teasels which had been uprooted so I righted then staked them.

The pot marigold flowers are increasing daily providing a patchwork area of bright colours,  including this one.


This cosmos is from one that self-seeded last year.   The plants below are from seeds I sowed a couple of months ago being a mix of the white Purity, red and white Veloutte and an unknown variety which is white with a hint of pink.

I always give Nikki a rose Pretty Lady for her birthday, which is tomorrow.  Some years I’ve wondered if it would start flowering in time but this year I had to remember to take a picture before it finished!   She’s also starting a new job so Good luck and Happy Birthday Nikki!  xx

It looks like being a better week ahead so I’ll be hopefully doing plenty of plotting.

Have a good week!

    A flowering field of pot marigolds — they look so cheerful.

    It’s all looking good down on the plot. The rain has destroyed a pot I planted up – geraniums, dianthus and something else – all flattened with brown and sodden flowers. I’m hoping it’ll come back. CJ xx

    Natural and pretty arrangements on the plot. The weather has been a bit of a pick-and-mix. xx

    We seem to have nothing but wind lately but last Tuesday was horrendous. I sometimes wish I could roll a roof over the garden to protect it. June winds are the worst.
    What a pretty rose.

    Your marigolds are excelling themselves this year. So pleased to see the rose flowered in time for Nicky’s

    Ack! How have I missed this? Thank you for remembering– I was already so delighted to see how the whole shrub looked covered in gorgeous blooms. Thank you, my friend. It was a very hectic week.
