The Tuesday View: 2nd August 2016

The summer is flying by and the garden is progressing too. We had rain all day Sunday, which made the Perovskia droop somewhat, and today it is raining again – I picked the perfect 5 minute interval in showers for these photos of the rockery today, and the sun almost came out – two minutes later it was raining again!

And from a few steps higher…

The Persicaria foliage and red spiky flowers make up for the fact that the red rose is only showing a few flowers at the moment…

And the Scabiosa ochroleuca is now in full bloom in front of the Perovskia…

… then there are also these dear little white flowers, which have spread around the rockery: Succisella inflexa ‘Frosted Pearls’…

The bees love it as much as I do and were there the moment the rain stopped.

I wonder how the month has begun in your garden. Do share your view so we can see how it progresses through the seasons.

Happy August!
