Darling Buds

darling.budsIn between labouring in the last few days I have been aware of interesting progress in the two hot borders, as late summer flowers start to rev up for the late showing – the dahlias are slowly beginning to bud up (top left is ‘Orange Nugget’), lazy Crocosmia ‘Constance’ (top right) is now thinking of joining ‘Canary Bird’ and ‘Lucifer’ which have been flowering for weeks, the flower heads of Which? Gardening trial sunflowers are belatedly increasing in size (bottom left) and another attempt at Achillea (‘Fanale’, bottom right) is looking promising. Summer isn’t over yet!

The Wall is going well, is looking good and is about two thirds done, but, being a shortie, laying bricks is getting harder and I will need to rig up some sort of low platform tomorrow.

    What is the tree in the middle? I think this will be a very cosy corner very soon, speedy Gonzales!

      😉 . Only 2 or 3 hours a day – about an hour for one bag of mortar mix and about 25 bricks, so it’s steady progress.It’s the amelanchier in the middle, Annette. And you are right, a well instead of the brushwood fence is already giving it a completely different look and feel. I think I might keep the bench on this side of the circle, which is where it was before I moved the rose garden from here
