Feeling jinxed or going colour blind?

Posted: Yesterday at 10:39

I agree chrissie, and some colours are hard to photograph I've noticed.

I haven't photographed tropical dream but the photo of romance has remained resolutely orange

Feeling jinxed or going colour blind?

Posted: Yesterday at 10:18

I think I have the correct plants but have been conned by photographic trickery by the online suppliers!

For future reference I can confirm eremurus romance is orange not pink and tropical dream is yellow not a coconuty white (as viewed through my eyes)

I already have orange and yellow foxtails but I would probably have bought these anyway🤔😉

Anyone done any gardening today - version 3

Planted the rest of my summer pots and hanging baskets today, thought it was about time. I buckled and bought some lucky dip bedding from Suttons, 36 for £25. Lovely plants, some a bit stringy as they were ready to get out of their pots but all will repair themselves.

Planted out some more cosmonauts and collated various little seedlings in case spares are required.  

Could do with tidying up outside now I've emptied so many pots, bit of a mess really

Plant ID Please

So many photos to catch up on - I can't remember who posted what, Barefoot, your garden is beautiful and so colourful. Your verbascums are amazing, wish mine looked like that!

Are you having another open day this year BL? (from Joyce's comment) if so, the best of luck hope it goes well.
