So today, as time is short, the garden is parched and I haven’t reported on it since inception (conception?), I thought I’d conduct Garden Bloggers Bloom Day from my Cutting Garden down the road.

Don’t you just love annuals?  From May 13thIMG_2226to July 15th

I’ve been delighted with my ‘cutting’ blooms which, together with other flowers in the garden (particularly sweet peas) are providing buckets of lovely arrangements.

With many thanks to Carol at May Dreams Gardens for hosting this meme.

    I love your cutting garden and all the lovely flowers you grow in it, Jenny. I am determined to have a cutting garden next year. What gorgeous flowers you have. The Malope is amazing; , the flowers are like silk.

    I am so jealous – what lovely blooms for cutting. I love antirrhinums and always have some in my garden. The colours on offer in garden centres are often rather strange though so I usually end up with yellow. I bought one this year that was called scarlet something or other, feeling fairly hopeful this would be a real red, but no – it is pink!!!
