Garden Blogger Blooms Day

So we are a few days early but we are joining in anyway! Here are some pictures of what is blooming in our garden:
Love in a mist

Sweet Peas - still going!

Another sunflower

Sweetcorn - a bit late but definitely in bloom!


And another nasturtium - twin coloured this time

Rudbeckia gloriosa, sewn from seed this spring

Penstemon keeping up the pink blooms outside the front door. This has been going for months!

The last of this years clematis flowers. They have done well for their first summer. 
Sedum just starting to come into bloom.
We also have some rather pecked at camomile (apparently the petals are tasty for chickens), lavender attempting a second flush and a hebe that is just about still flowering. Not much more to come this year for flowers. I will try and force some paperwhites in a few weeks but aside from berries and pretty leaves this is it.


  1. Beautiful Joe! I must get more clematis.

    1. Do. Apparently I cursed it by saying that was the last flower - there are two more flowers now!

  2. Beautiful blooms!
    I, for one, am looking forward to cooler weather, and berries, and pretty leaves! We have been hot and dry. Hoping cooler weather will bring rain.
    Happy Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day!

    1. The weather has definitely turning autumnal here - we have just turned on the central heating on a rather damp, grey day. Today's predicted high? 16c but feels like 14. The berries are already coming, or at least those the chickens can't eat are. We were raiding the hedgerows whilst out walking. We have had a late flurry of flowers though, with another half dozen sunflowers opening up! I fear the storm that is blowing in will put an end to them: strong winds and heavy rain forecast...


We love reading your comments, so feel free to leave lots of them!
