I have colour, but not all at the same time. As one bit fades, something else takes over. Oh to have a chelsea garden budget, where everything is at it peak.
This morning on an apple leaf. The rear one is black with two red patches, the underneath one is red with lots of black spots. Are these the same species. ???
Judging from the jiggy jggy that was going on I guess these were mating.
Sorry, I was having a blank bit then, thats THALICTRUM black stockings, not thunbergia
I must need more coffee.
Lots of colour in your garden, Matt.
Foxgloves under the Pear tree.
My blue poppy
Clematis Ville de lion , a £2 cheapie from Morrisons last year.
Oriental poppies.(seed grown)
Eccremocarpus scaber, grown from seed and survived the winter to go mad this year.
View of the island bed and the Eucalyptus perinniana from the pergola.
Cornus kousa chinensis
Thunbergia black stockings, Allium globemaster, Honeysuckle Graham Thomas starting to flower on the pergola, Verbascum violetta.
I sowed cornflowers in plug trays, watched them germinate, and lost half a tray in the night to a 1 cm long slug I found sheltering underneath.
If it was yesterday or before when you sprayed them, you will probably lose the lot. If it was this morning, get out there with a hosepipe, and rinse and rinse and rinse.
Knautia macedonica melton pastels.
Grown from seed last year. They may only last a year or two , but I can take seed off them later on in the year.
