I dashed out between showers today to grab a few shots with my macro lens for today’s Bloom Day.
The garden is still full of wild foxgloves, most of them purple. I am keeping my eye on the ripening seeds as the flower heads are now getting near the top of the stalks. The bees and hover flies are still loving them though.
The Alliums, which I grew for the first time this year, are still looking amazing, especially covered in raindrops which shine in the sun.
And a few new flowers have opened since the end of June:
The Ladybird poppies which I grew from seed are now flowering and looking stunning, if a bit bedraggled.
I have mollycoddled this little geranium for the last two years. It has suffered very badly with mildew and I thought I had lost it several times. However this year it has rewarded me with beautiful blue flowers. I hope it will grow a bit now.
You can’t beat a rose covered in raindrops. . .
