It is a perfect summer’s day again today, and the Tuesday View is still looking refreshed from a few cooler days last week. Focusing on this part of the rockery has been extremely satisfying this year so far, as more is in flower than I remember from previous years. And although the dry stony part at the bottom is partly bare ground now after the heatwave, this part I look down on most often is densely planted and thriving!
The first picture is from the side, looking through the Acer. The Perovskia is now in full bloom and the Miscanthus is getting taller.
Most of the rockery is now difficult to see from this angle, so here it is head on, with a freshly mown (and green!) ‘lawn’ beyond.
Not much has changed since last week, but the yellow Achillea is finally setting more buds and growing a bit taller.
Right at the top of the rockery, just in front of where I stand to take the photo, is a lovely pale pink Potentilla fruticosa. It has taken years to get established and is a slightly odd shape, but the flowers are very pretty. When it gets a bit bigger I will trim it into a nicer shape.

And thanks to all those who join me regularly (or even irregularly!).
