Ammi majus, calendula, Echinacea purpurea, echinops ritro, grown from seed, nigella, poppies, Tuesday View, Verbena bonariensis
The garden benefited from the rain on Saturday, a freshness has returned to the planting after a long dry spell.
Taken this morning before the sun had broken through. There is a pink haze thanks to the verbena and grasses.
The Echinops ritro are peeping above.
All tall and full. I must just show off my Echinacea in the opposite border.
That was my quick dash round before work just before the sunshine emerged. Now take a visit to words and herbs Cathy and catch up on her view.
Oh one final thing, my few packets of seed are looking rather good:
Enjoy your evening. D.
Hi Dorris! I like the pink tinges from the grasses with Verbena and Cosmos to highlight them. Oh, and the Echinacea are gorgeous… you don’t have a problem with slugs eating them? I am so envious! Is that a deep pink poppy among the cornflowers? The pink cornflowers are lovely, but nothing beats that blue! Thanks for sharing! 🙂
You have created some lovely combinations with the grasses! I find that echinacea isn’t as long lived as I’d like it to be, maybe as Cathy suggests, it’s down to the slugs and snails or maybe our heavy soil?
My soil is also heavy clay Kate and I certainly have slugs and snails in the garden ( my hostas are shredded). The echinacea was planted two years ago so I have yet to lose it. That’s dull. Perhaps I should try to take some cuttings as back up.
Wonderful. I love the last pictures best. Are those Calendula and Nigella?
Thanks. You are spot on , calendula and nigella.
