Here is what is blooming in the garden this mid summer. I was a little worried that the sage would not flower, it was looking somewhat poorly, but thankfully it has bloomed. I fear the bees would miss it if it hadn’t as they do enjoy it.
Campanula – Bellflower. This is a tall, large flowered one. It does get a bit battered with the wind but does manage to seed itself around a little. I love plants that give you more plants for free.
Our beautiful native foxglove. I need to collect seed this autumn and grow more of these. I have lots of shady corners where they can go.
These are wild orchids that grow in my meadow. Each year I get one or two more of them popping up.
Snapdragons are great for adding colour and are loved by bees too. These are ones that came through the winter, but I have just planted out some new ones which will hopefully provide some late summer colour too.
