is generally looking rather frazzled at present. Despite that I’m well pleased with the cosmos Sonata White I’ve grown for the first time rather than the taller Purity. There are plenty of these lovely white flowers on bushy plants that are only a couple of feet high.
I’m equally pleased with the multi-headed sunflowers Ring of Fire, which grow to around four feet,with flowers on long, strong stems.
Further to Sunday’s post on Tuesday I saw this Small Copper butterfly, which is another plot first, on the candytuft Spangles (note correct name!).
A thunderstorm warning has been issued for tomorrow but much as I want rain I really don’t want any torrential downpours which are likely to damage plants and mostly run off the ground surface rather than soak in. The temperature looks like rising again to the high 20’s F/low 80’s C over the weekend and into next week.
Have a good weekend!
