@cranesbill .. it is actually purple and i believe to be  toadflax..and once you have it it seeds very very easily, it is great with oranges and pinks.. tall and you can just keep cuttin down the stem to remove dead heads it it keeps flowering.

some gorgeous rose again.. they have done well this year.. the colours are outstanding loving that Pat Austin one very much... lovin your garden too looks like mine just colourful.

Must admit i am not a true rose fan.. bu thaving seen so many beautiftul ones on here I am temepted to get some.. i have free draining sandy soil will they like it..

Yes please do blow it this way.. really totally fed up with the rain now.. and not even getting GW fix... it is not good.

some good thou.. the lavender seeds i planted have started shooting.. but the maltese cross and the violas..nothing.. not enough light level i think.

in the garden the cupids darts is now toatlly flat..dunno if it will pick up.. my lavender dlowers are starting to droop to the ground also. and i have had 3 yellow aquilegas flowering non stop since start of may.. i keep dead heading they keep producing.. unusual for them.. but like a ray of sunshine out there at the moment.

My snapdragons aren't very well !!!
