Part 2 of the garden extravaganza!! Lots more lovely plants and flowers to share with you!
I hope that you enjoy the photos and flowers. There are lots of beautiful penstemons in this post and I have a question for you about the name of one plant. I hope you can help me out with that!
Sweet peas doing their best. They are still a little short, but they were sown late. That is OK, they will just extend the flowering season right!
The sunflowers are doing really well though! They are quite tall already.
The everlasting sweet pea is doing well though and has some very pretty flowers. I am torn between picking them and leaving them in the garden. Right now leaving them in the garden is winning.
Normally these lilies have nothing around them but space. I had actually forgotten they were there though because everything else has grown so much. They have done their thing though and add some more colour! I wonder if all of the plant growth will have discouraged the lily beetles. I can't see the leaves to be able to tell!
The penstemons are incredible this year with masses and masses of flowers. The only trouble is that I want more of them! Oh well, it is a nice problem to have isn't it!
See, more penstemons doing really well and looking beautiful!
These daisies are volunteers which have come through from next door. No complaints though!
Can you believe that we still have pansies. I can't! As long as they keep flowering they can stay!
I am pretty good at plant names in terms of the type of plant, even if not the actual variety. However, this plants name escapes me. Can you help?
This slightly odd picture is looking up from underneath the plant. It makes an interesting silhouette doesn't it.
Finally for today the beautiful continus or smoke bush. You can see why it is called a smoke bush from the way the flowers and stems puff above the leaves a little like smoke.
The final part of the round the garden trip will happen tomorrow. I hope you are enjoying it as much as I am!
Linking with Riitta for Flower Wednesday. Thank you for hosting Riitta!
