Plenty of blooms for my late GBBD, starting with this lovely Cosmos, C. ‘Psyche White’. This is flourishing in the Grass Bed together with the newly planted Erigeron sommerneuschnee and
and the late sown Malope trifida ‘Alba’ which has only just started flowering.
Bringing more colour, plenty of Dahlias – pink (clockwise) ‘Hillcrest Royal’, ‘Roxy’, ‘Burlesque’ and unknown (!)
dark – D. La Recolata
and orange – the old favourite D. Happy Single Date
More pink from fabulous Perlagonium ‘Surcouf’ now climbing the trellis
and a couple of other colour duos in the Swing Bed – Aster frikartii ‘Monch’ in the foreground with Nepeta ‘Six Hills Giant’ behind
and Salvia x jamensis ‘Stormy Sunrise’ and Diascia personata
Meanwhile, in the tin bath by the steps, the jolly Gazanias continue to flowers their jolly socks off.
In the Bronze Bed the oft featured roses and dahlias have now been joined by Echinacea ‘Summer Cocktail’
and Agastache ‘Apricot Sprite’ grown from seed (from Special Plants) last year.
And to finish this little Viper’s Bugloss, also grown from seed and still sitting in the seed tray while I try to decide where to plant it. I think it deserves better!
I’m joining Carol at May Dreams Gardens to celebrate GBBD, why don’t you see what others have blooming?
