A couple of Clematis and Cornflower  . The sun is only coming out now!! Very overcast all day down here in Cobh. I hear the East had a very hot day.  Heavy rain last night demolished most of the Roses but saves watering for the time being.

I don't know if it is true but over the past few years it seems to me that Penstemons are not appearing in gardens very frequently???  I love them though spent many hours dead heading long long rows of them in another life!  Here are just three and apart from Apple blossom I am not risking putting names to the others cos I am not sure. Do you grow them?

A few more photos for Jacinta

Was away for a few days and went to a couple of gardens. One I had been to a few years ago and loved called Aultnagreagh near Dunmanway . A real cottage garden and full account is on their very good website . Not weed free by any means and reminded me of my garden as we had many weeds in common including that willow that seeds all over the place!  Pergola , pond  , secret garden . They grow loads of veggies and fruit and you can get a cuppa there as well!!  Would recommend it to anyone who loves a profusion of plants in lovely surroundings.

For Fran Kew Beauty

Fran I was very interested in your photo of Roscoea Kew Beauty. In your photo it seemed almost white? I have grown this for a few years and it is a lovely pale yellow. Doing a spot of Googling there are pictures of it looking white and some with a hint of yellow. Did yours show the true colour on the photo? I took a pic of mine today and it is even yellower than in the photo. Wondering if the colour can vary.

I think of these plants as being the very quiet ones, no sign of growth and then oliver sudden there are flowers. Red Gurkha I thought I had lost and yesterday saw it appearing above ground....probably be flowering tomorrow lol.

Martin more photos.

The Roses around my cottage door are looking ok but the red one which is ever so old is  on the way out I fear. The other Masquerade , is fine but has bad black spot despite spraying. The gravel bed guarded by Oakbird is of no interest to Meg who is more interested in watching the gate.   Was wondering about the name of the pelargonium and noticed the tortoise !

Rose and poppies
