๐ŸƒNature’s Wonders. Second Chance Flowers For #SixOnSaturday #GardeningTwitter #GardeningLife

Sunshine and showers, foggy mornings, warm days and winds. We’ve been having a real mix of weather this week. Out in the garden plants are still flowering, with some putting in a second showing.

First photo goes to this lovely Laurentia which I proudly managed to photo in focus, this has powered through all summer. It is only a half hardy annual, which I would definitely grow again.

My second photo is a lovely ‘smiley’ Cosmos. Smiley because they make me smile rather than any particular variety.

My third photo is of a little cornflower which is still flowering. I do love this blue.

The soft leaved Mahona has more flowers now and the bumblebees are feeding from them.

Fifth photo is of the Hypericum Hidcote (St. John’s Wort) – well I think that’s what it is, it’s one of our inherited plants again, which I don’t know the name of. It had put on a great show until the drought got it and all the flowers seemed to drop overnight. But now it is flowering once more which is lovely to see.

Finally, Cupressus ‘Goldcrest Wilma’ a new plant for me and one I was able to choose to review, although how you can review a live plant quickly, I don’t know๐Ÿ˜‰ I said it was a little damaged by delivery, but that it was perking up and would make a good house plant.
