Your photos are great, Cinderella. I love the C. Red Robin - very pretty indeed, but everything is lovely.

3 Jul, 2013

 

Thank you Tuesdaybear. I think the C.Red Robin is just as pretty when the flower has gone and we have the seed heads.

3 Jul, 2013

 

Agree!

Plenty pretties Cinders - I love that Clematis Red Robin.

Thank you Olive. I hope I shall get a few courgettes. Love courgette soup.

Thanks Scottish. Its a very different clematis. No open flower as such.

Lovely closeups, especially that foxglove and the hosta, so many flowers. Mine are still in bud. Damp start to the day here too but sunshine now (7.30pm!).

Lovely close up photos of your plants :o) I like that Ipomoea. I've never seen one that colour before.
I hope the weather improved for you as the day went on.

3 Jul, 2013

 

Thanks Gee.

Thanks Hywel, A friend gave me the Ipomoea so I didn't know what to expect. Its been a bit dreary today but the sun is shining now.

Another great set of pics. That's a nice hosta. I used to have one but alas no more.

Is is just me or does anyone else sometimes suddenly fancy they can smell some of the flowers when they appear -this time it was the pansy. It didn't last long but it was definitely there.

I love close ups,Cinders,and if i had to choose a favourite,it would be the first one of the Delphs..just love those..all are beautiful aren't they,when you get up close..

3 Jul, 2013

 

Thank you Stera and Sandra. I love those little faces on the pansies and violas, but no I can't smell them. The Delphs are beautiful too aren't they.

3 Jul, 2013

 

So do I,Cinders..in fact I never noticed how lovely the Viola's smell till this year,as I had two pots by the front door ..all these years,and I never knew! I pruned them all back a couple of weeks ago,and top dressed them with new compost . they are flowering again already ,so very happy..I can never smell Freesias though,even if I get close to them..

Beautiful pictures Cinderella, hard to pick a favourite but the black Viola is very striking amid the green :o)

3 Jul, 2013

 

They are all so lovely really like the photo after the dianthus is it a foxglove ?

3 Jul, 2013

 

Neellan, the black viola was a surprise self seeded one. Don't know where it came from but its very welcome, so unusual.
Kidsgran thank you. Yes that is a foxglove. I only have a couple of those this year, but have some apricot ones for next year.

I love your pics Cinders, but that Ipomoea has stolen my heart! :)

3 Jul, 2013

 

Thanks Karen, will save you some seed.

Thanks ever so much Cinders! :)

lovely selection of photos, it may have been a bit of a damp start to the day but the plants appear to love it.
All three of the plants in my hosta pot have produced a flower bud each recently (it is only their second season) so I am hoping they open as beautifully as yours have.

4 Jul, 2013

 

Thank you Moti, and Mark.
Have made a note Karen.

Thanks Xela, I am sure your Hostas will be fine, and next year even better.

In case anyone was wondering, picture No.6 is a garden pea flower.

4 Jul, 2013

 

beautiful Cinders :)
I thought the flower was a 'pansy' , wonder if it is another name for pea flower?
I also loved the Ipomoea & have never seen anything quite like it.

4 Jul, 2013

 

Great work....goodness, that Hosta is doing well.I don't think I've ever seen so many flowers on one Hosta plant.The morning Glory is gorgeous!

9 Jul, 2013

 

Thanks Paul, that is a super hosta isn't it. It doesn't seem to get the snail and slug damage that the others get luckily.
