The roses in our garden have been splendid this year. That is, until the rains came! This pink one is a particular favourite of mine.
The lilies have finished now, but were lovely while they lasted. I am amazed the still flower as they have been in the same pot for several years. I tried to repot them, but couldn't get them out, and didn't want to break the pot!
The gaillardias are in a pot on the patio. They will have to go in the garden next year, if they survive this year, as they have been there a couple of years now. They are really beautiful, and attract bees and various other insects.
I love big white daisies. These are the shaggy sort, very tall, and the wind has now blown them over the twine holding them to some bamboo canes. I also bought a different sort of Shasta daisy. I didn't think they would get very showy this year, but they have exceeded my expectations!
Now all we need is a return to summer weather, and I can get out there and tidy things up!
