Finally some drier weather has brought on some promised flower-power!
First the hanging basket.
Clematis Comtesse de Bouchard.
My "Colly-flower" rose peeking through a fern and white astrantias.
The hebe is coming into bud along with the prostrate campanulas.
The front garden is becoming a bit of a jungle!
This is really the only patch that isn't overgrown...this Lavender isn't quite the bee-magnet specimen I envisaged.
One clematis is doing well...the other not so much. I have a suspicion that the one below may have been damaged by either the local cats that use this gap as a route, or an errant ball. I'll see what happens later in the year.
The lilac hydrangea however is smothered in flowering potential!
Verbena bonariensis above, and hebe with hardy geranium below.
I can report that the bees are well and truly happy with my planting of the front garden!
I would like to wish any readers from over the pond a Happy 4th July.
