Garden Pictures 2016

Verdun, your garden is looking gorgeous. Have you got a new camera? Clearest photos I've seen from you. We have hot weather and we had a wet spring but it makes my plants grow tall and fall over. Still haven't got to grips properly with staking.

Yours looks lovely, Chicky, beautiful loose feel to it.

No one would have known you are a novice, Mortuus, if you hadn't said so!

No wonder I couldn't guess it, although I have seen them in England. Impossible to grow in SW France. Daughter No 1 bought me one once and it promptly died when it felt the sun, although it was in the shade a lot of the day.

My corn on the cob forks are made of wood.

30° and over is too hot for me too! I spend a fortune on metered water, but I have butts as well. Usually in the summer we have big storms with heavy rain that keeps it all going. We need one now but the one forecast a few days ago didn't get this far south. I was staying with son further north and they had a big storm. Storms forecast next week.

Aunty Rach, it was an ageratum. I need a clapping smiley!

I don't know yours, Kitty. Don't think I'm very good at this!

Oh dear, I recognise Philippa's, but I can't for the life of me remember its name.

Papi Jo has me flummoxed.

Stunning astilbes, wish I could grow them here, too hot and dry in SW France.

Aym, the blue flowers are Calibrachoa "Amethyst", the pink daisy is an anthemis, the cactus dahlia is "Park Princess" (about 20 years old, never dig it up), the yellow and brown flowers in the trough are rudbeckia "Denver Daisy". It hasn't rained for a month, nearly out of rain water for the blueberries. And it's been up to 30° recently.
