Well I should be doing the housework, but here I am again posting.
The garden is alive with sound of blue tits, and great tits and if I'm very lucky long tailed tits.
I love it when they all fly in with their peep peep peeps, I can even forgive them for plant bending, its funny to see movement amongst the undergrowth then watch a tit on a stem bend to the floor in slow motion. I just wish we had tits all year and not sparrows who scare away the long tailed tits and peck at my lettuce! In decline 'my a*se'.
This the view from my desk where I blog. And above is my kitchen with the sweet peas. So following the garden round from the left, here is the chaos that is my 'under development' garden.
helenium, rosemary, agastache, hyssop, astrantia, santolina, verbena, white rose, raven penstemon and new white honeysuckle.
day lily, dahlia, bay, echinacea, echinops ritro ++
Not really my cup of tea, rosewise, but its a great performer. lemon balmn cotinis, varigated lavatera grown from seed this year, should have burgundy flower.
Miscanthus sinensis 'Zebrinus', marsh mallow, japanese anenome, white buddleia
penstemon garnet, gertrude jekyll rose hiding, scabious wildly out of control!
bugundy ice rose, squashed in agapanthus, lavender rosea, lemon achillea
Eupatorium cannabinum, berberis, heuchera, hellebore, holly, astrantia claret
Back to the patio with a fatsia and a climbing hydrangea.
So as you can see its all in need of some attention whether it be moving or editing. phew...
