August 2021 poppies and morning glory

The morning glory is managing on its own; I feel mildly guilty that I didn’t give it something to climb on. It is a gorgeous deep velvety purple. It is growing alongside some white four o clocks.

These poppies are interesting. I think they are the Peony Double Blend from Botanical Interests

There is something amazing about the petals of a poppy, almost papery in appearance.

The purple morning glories are so luminescent.

Here is a lovely morning picture of SIdney and Tiglet; you can see just how the hot dry weather has been rough on the lawn.

June 2021 Poppies, lilies, and catnip

These lovelies popped out over the night! So pink and happy.

I’m not sure I like these overly garish lilies, but they made me smile this morning when I went around the corner of the fence. It is odd too because I don’t remember these poppies in the front being such a strident pink last year.

This rose is looking lovely especially with the Love-in-a-mist (nigella) right there.

The cats are happy about this big bunch of catnip I pulled out.

The hydrangea on the north west corner of the house look particularly good this year and they are just starting to open out.
