The Tuesday View: 4th July 2017

It is a warm and muggy Tuesday as I take my photos for my weekly look at the south-west rockery.

The ants have just flown and the sun keeps disappearing behind threatening clouds, but it remains dry. The garden has benefitted enormously from showers over the past five or six days, and the red Lychnis continues to provide splashes of colour.

The lavender is at its peak and the golden rod is standing tall, regardless of rain or drought, sun or wind.

The Perovskia on this side of the rockery will be opening soon, as will the Achillea in the round plant support in the foreground… it is just starting to show some yellow.

Here is the same view when the sun disappeared behind another cloud!

I look forward to seeing other Tuesday views this week. Do join me if you can!
