At the moment I’m pleased…

to see that, with one or two exceptions, everything – flowers, soft fruit and vegetables –  are all doing well.   Here are a few of the best of Flighty’s flowers so far this year.

Cosmos are one of my favourite flowers, especially white ones, and this year I’m growing Sonata White which only grows to less than two feet.  This one didn’t wait to get anywhere near that height as it’s only six inches.

The rather uncommon collomia grandiflora is the best it’s ever been.

I wonder how many different colour combinations of the more familiar pot marigolds Flighty’s favourites will appear this year.

Lastly it’s Nikki‘s birthday on Tuesday and I always give her a rose Pretty Lady.   Happy birthday, I hope that you have a lovely day.   xx

Have a good week!

    Roses are at their peak at the moment aren’t they, I’m noticing them everywhere. The scent in the garden is wonderful. Love the little cosmos, it would be a good option for containers. Hope you have a good week, it looks like more great gardening weather. CJ xx

  2. Lovely! The collomia is one I’ve never heard of, it is beautiful, will keep an eye out for that one. x

    Lovely blooms all. (Sophie dug a hole where i’d sown my cosmos seeds! Perhaps she thought I’d put them in the wrong place.) Your collomia is most interesting.

    Wow, there are so many ‘lovelies’ on show! I like cosmos a lot too. I had the yellow and orange ones before but never the white ones. Have never seen them in fact. Sonata White is indeed very beautiful!
    Thanks and have a good week to you too.

    just lovely, flowers are a must on the plot – beautiful to see and fabulous of insects. I think if I were an wee bee I’d choose the cosmos 😉 x

  7. Glad all is doing so well. I am racing to stand still here! Xx

    All the best Jan

    Oh, thank you! I do love the creamy petals of that rose. And your collomia is always a treat.
