Had a walk around the garden taking stock after a good lunch and was surprised at how well most of the plants are doing.
My Hydrangea Macrophylla Sheila is in full bloom with pink corymbs of flowers, it is in a sheltered spot and gets afternoon and evening sun. The Heuchera has flowered with tall bracts above the purple leaves next to the Fuchsia with its red flowers and the Potentilla with its yellow flowers.
There is so much in bloom as other plants finish and get dead headed, The Peonia leaves are glistening as they take in the sunlight to feed the roots. It is not all good news but nature likes this weather better than we do.
We will write some things off, enjoy what we get and make plans for next year, that is gardening, look ahead not back.
