|It's August and all my seeded annuals are blooming away. Not at all suffering from the heat wave this week, unlike myself. This is Salpiglossis'Kew blue' a dark velvet purpley blue, much darker in person.|
|Nigella hispanica 'African bride' just now starting to bloom .|
|My free packet of German catchfly , Lychnis viscaria , so lovely , so many tiny blooms, I 've tucked them into every available space.|
|Amaranth chinese giant orange not yet 8' , but getting there, which means I've planted it in the wrong place!|
|Nicotiana 'Crimson bedder' and ' Miss Libby'|
|My favorite table companion Zaluzianskya capensis ( zal-oo-zee-AN-skee-uh) or just Night Phlox.|
Yes...it was once again, worth all the mess and fiddly seedy business of trays and compost.
