The Garden – The First Half of July #garden #colour

Sometimes, the garden feels rather fallow in July.The poppies have finished and the sunflowers are just budding. Day lilies come and go with disarming rapidity. But still, the dahlias have made it and are beginning to explode, the drought fears have receded with pulses of welcome rain – even the lawn has perked up. And the vegetable section of the potager has bee fantastic. Indeed the combination of calendular and cornflower has been a revelation. So enjoy… oh and if you make it to the end there’s Dog and a short Vicky video for her admirers…

And Dog…?

And Vicky…

    Glorious colours, Geoff. Slugs ate my dahlias and only a few bedraggled, munched-at specimens survived.
