July in Bloom .

We were sitting out last night, when I reminded Philip of todays Bloom day. His first reaction was "You've got shit loads!"
Then as he scanned around ..."Oh you're  F...ked "
I 'd just spend the day pulling and cutting down all the early bloomers, which leaves me short till the Asters and Heleniums     . 

Still there are plenty of blooms . The first of the pint sized Glads.  from 'Old house bulbs' . This must be 'bibi' .



Looks like : Heleniums, Echinacea , Eryngium agavefolium, Bronze fennel, Feather grass  and my mother's Phlox. 

Eryngium "Miss Wilmotts Ghost' with Inula Orientalis and Asclepias tuberosa . Not sure how that combination came about .

      A collapsing Santolina with Allium sphaerocephalon . 

My camera battery ran out , so lastly Echinacea pallida , which I grew from seed a few years ago and has really taken off.

The garden this morning..


After the boom, boom of last night. There was peace in the garden early this morning .
I've been lacking big projects this summer.

Then I decided the old Philadelphus should go.
