Lovely pictures, I love to see other peoples gardens. I'm always peeking a look over hedges & fences to see what is going on , even when driving.
Hi Rob, I know exactly what you mean about the warm weather giving everything a boost, it's what they have been waiting for..........please lets have a little more? The left hand bed at the side of the trellis looks really bushy & healthy.
I know Nigella as Love in the mist. I have some in my garden for the first time this year. Not really sure how I managed this as I thought they were going to be. Larkspur...........I do remember collecting seeds from a garden last year though.
gardenfanatic- your Rudbeckias look amazing, what a great show. I've grown these from seed for the first time and they have just started to flower. I am right in thinking that they are perennials?
Also really like the white Budelia, haven't really give this much of thought as my memories of Budelia are very tall, langly, blocking out the light Budelia. It looks like it doesn't have to take up much room. Have you had a lot of insects visit it?
I'm with you on the not so slow changing of seasons, I'm always optimistic for an Indian Summer.
Inkadog- love the door and the steps. look great.
Thanks Pam for your kind words, I am so pleased with my snapdragons and also my stock, both grown from seed. The smell of the stock if the air is right is amazing, fills the air
