Flowers the last few days


Hope everyone’s doing ok in this really strange weather we are having, just a few pics of the flowers over the last few days…

achillea millefolium ’Summer berry ’ i have this in between different plants so it can grow between… i like the colour of this one..

achillea millefolium ‘Summer berry’ lighter shade, not as keen on this one but it fills a hole for now…

My begonia’s are starting to bloom, i have these in an old herb terracotta pot, they seem happy :-)

I couldn’t beleave this one, sorry the pics not great, the last two flowers on each plant and been blown together by the wind… or were they just lonely and wanted a cuddle…..

Not normally my type of plant but in my grass area i thought i’d put a few in…. Echium little bells…

My Eucomis Vandermerwei is starting to put up a flower spike, since i took this nearly a week ago it’s a lot further along now…

Now a few Lily’s that i have..


L.Regal from the side….

Quite scented this one..

Stargazer in my grass area…

My Passionflower is flowering at last, this is the one i have outside growing up my shed…

Pink Astilbies that my Holly picked :-)

And it wouldn’t be me without a few grass shots :-) my Briza Maxima path, it did look better before the rain trashed it….

Sown in January this is why i love it, a golden beauty shakes gently in the wind…

My girls fav grass the bunnytails grass, Lagurus ovatus quite a graceful one when it’s not raining….

And to Finish, the Olympic torch came through our town Tuesday so i took my girls to see it, sorry pics were from my cam corder so not the best… but it’s Ray Wilkins,,,

Another of Ray as he ran past….

Anyway hope to catch up with everyone soon, thanks for looking

Lovely SL I also have first 2 flowers bought recently - and an ecomis - are they spotted so flies think eggs are on them and don't lay anymore? Beatiful astile and grasses - you know me and grasses! - excellent you saw the torch !!!

Lovely to see your grasses and lilies S`lad, I love the Summer Berry, its really pretty, I only have the rather drab pink one but the bees love it and it looks good with my poppies, they help support one another....
I saw the torch last week, history in the making....

12 Jul, 2012


Cheers Mate, yes the hoverflys and bees love the Achillia's, not so sure of the spotting on the Eucomis but the do attract the flies don't they :-) me too love grasses...

thanks Lincslass they are good fillers i find and as you say the bees love it, yes it's nice that my girls have a memory like that as you say history in the making :-)
