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!
