GLORIOUS COLOUR - SIX ON SATURDAY
Here are my garden highlights for this week.
1 The Nasturtiums were photographed this evening in the setting sun as befits their sunset colours. These sit at the front of the long border where scarlet and crimson mingle with the orange.
2. Dahlia David Howard is usually bright orange, but is looking a little bit more subtle than usual.
3. Rudbeckia Goldsturm is not subtle! Its doing its job of adding a summery sizzle in the yellow section of the long border.
4. Rosa Burgundy Ice intermingled with Persicaria Red Dragon. There is a change of mood to smoky purples in the Rose Garden.
5. Dusky pinks and purples in the shady borders of the Rose Garden.
6 This little Dianthus has been one of my favourite plants this summer. I keep it in the greenhouse where its beautiful perfume is intensified by the heat so that it scents the air all around. The smell is the same as the divine carnation scented Roger and Gallet Soap with the romantic name of Oeillet Mignardise. Sadly it no longer seems to be available, so this plant is the closest I can get.
