• In Amongst the Green

    The dahlias are coming into flower

    Now that most of the roses are going over there is far more green than colour in the garden. Geranium maderense does a great job filling the gap between the early and late flowerers, especially as it self-seeds readily (in mild areas).  Meanwhile the first of the dahlias are in flower, the sweet peas provide a daily picking and annuals like cosmos, orlaya and cornflowers are starting to add touches of colour amongst the green.
