Hi Matt,  Lovely Cosmos in the planter , mine are just starting to get going, maybe we are in for a lovely, late show?

I have some of  the white flowers,acidanthera............ I think.  MIne are in pots and are in  no mood to start flowering. I've just a couple of green shoots. Get this feeling that my garden is very,very late- My Lilies have only just come into bloom

On a positive note- I've seen one flower on my Scabioius- and I've seen an insect on it

Out of interest- what are the pink trailing plant in pic 2?

Sweet picture Pam

Gracie- I think it's a type of buphtalmun looks very similar to a pic that Gary Hobson posted , so am guessing it's that. Tbh I thought it was weed, I just left it this year to fill a gap so very pleased that it has so many insects attracted to it.

Jaws is a great film. So is Alien

Hunger Games to me smacks of teenage vampires but I'm happy to be corrected.

I've never seen ET

Gracie-This plant seems to be an insect magnet- Just the thing that I've been looking for................ as it turms out, had it all along.

Have to confess, my memory of butterflies isn't as good as it used to be so thanks for the id of the butterfly. I thought it might have been a red admiral but a Tortoisehell, it makes sense.

 

 

August in your garden...

Hi Leggi- What do you mean by soap spray?

I share your experience- mine have behaved the same way you describe-  I've stopped bringing in cut blooms because of the greenfly.

I will still grow some for next year though, lovely flowers, great scent - I'll be doing my own trial on Autumn/Spring sowed Sweetpeas. The weather has been awful, this has an effect on everything but next year........
