but there’s still plenty of colour and interest on the plot, although overall it’s now looking somewhat past it’s best. It hasn’t helped that I’ve done hardly any proper plotting over the past couple of weeks.
This self-seeded sunflower appeared in the middle of the potato patch and has grown well over six feet tall with a large dinner plate size flower.
Having moved the sedums across the path earlier in the year I’m pleased to see that they’re doing well and now flowering.
The knee-high yellow cosmos Xanthos are still flowering profusely even though I’ve not been dead-heading them.
Despite the tomato plants being affected by blight I’ve left them as I’m still picking plenty of good fruit. At long last some of the black ones have gone blotchy red indicating that they’re ripe. They taste okay but I don’t think that I’ll grow them next year.
Have a good weekend!
