I’m hopeless at staking plants, so sadly, as the wet and windy weather hit over the weekend, some huge ‘branches’ of Cosmos ‘Psyche White’ broke off, so I salvaged them for a kitchen vase.
I love ‘Psyche White’. Whilst ‘Purity’ is another favourite, I think I prefer ‘Psyche White’s’ rather mad petals.
To the Cosmos I added some Malope trifida ‘Alba’. I grew them from seed for the first time this year and sowed them really late, so they’ve only just got going.
They are growing in the Grass Bed with the Cosmos, and these too were a little floppy – although happily not actually broken – so will hopefull bounce back once they dry off.
As well as the almost blue white flowers, I love the bright green buds – such a fresh colour when so much of the green in the garden is starting to look rather dreary and brown.
With thanks, as ever, to Cathy at Rambling in the Garden who hosts all our Monday vases.
