We have just come back from our 15 day holiday (went to England, West Country, parts rather similar to Dordogne where I live). Everything has grown amazingly. Unfortunately, so have the weeds. It was all beautiful for my Open Day on 7th June and now thistles are thigh high and in flower!
Anyway, the star is geranium psilostemon, which I planted last autumn, it was in flower for my Open Day and is still in flower. 2nd is Echium "Blue Bedder" that I grew from seed, beautiful and so blue, but it has flopped over onto the lawn and will all need staking, about 12 plants.
