I thought I'd post some pics of the very new front border.  It was only dug out of the lawn this March so still quite bare, but I'm pleased with the way the colours are working.


I've also got an Echinops I bought from Woottens the other day to replace the Morning Glories when they finish, a purple Salvia greggii to go in front of the paler achillea, and an Echinacea purpurea Magnus and Aster frikartii Monch to fit in somewhere. 

 Ignore the lawn - restoration still in progress.

Usual Problem

Yes, I agree with Bekkie - that's escaped from here

 Many of the brassicas have similar flowers, but that looks very much like oilseed rape to me - brother has acres of it.

Good morning all 

David, that's going to look amazing!!!

The weather forecaster on R4 just said that it's a sunny morning in the east - shall I phone up and tell her it isn't 

Identification required please

No idea about the begonia, but I think the campanula is either C. poscharskyana or C. portenschlagiana both very similar, one more rampant than the other - think it's the first that's more rampant.
