Continuing my monthly diary of the garden.
On the TV weather this evening Daren Bett has just announced “there’s something wrong with the weather at the moment” and I have to agree with him. Most of my garden posts have started with the same complaint. In the last few days we have experienced, in a random order, everything it can throw at us. The winds today made photography of my poor flowers difficult and its getting to the end of the month.
The Hostas which give good leaf colour all season also produce stately flowers.In amongst them grows the everlasting pearl white flowers of Anaphalis triplinervis Summer Snow, aptly named.Another unusual white flower appears in my pond – Houttuynia cordata ‘Plena’
Lets hope for a drier warmer August to bring out those colours.
