I sowed a packet of the small grass, stipa tenuissima at the time and it provided me with plants that are still going strong. It's well behaved and gives movement to the garden, waving gently in the slightest breeze. Yesterday the evening sun shone through the fronds making them look especially lovely.
The garden is in full summer mode.
Lots of colour!
The foxgloves are going over and the hollyhocks taking their place. They are all grown from a packet of white seed, not that you would know as they come in a variety of pastel shades!
It's St Swithin's Day, gloriously sunny- no sign of rain. It wasn't like this fifty-two years ago on our wedding day! I'm going to put on a summer dress and then we'll saunter out for a celebratory lunch.
