When I was choosing a name for my blog it was no surprise that Rockrose sprang to mind. After all, this flower is always in my garden, here there and everywhere.
Particularly so this summer when my absence for the garden from many weeks let it run riot.
But it is so hard to pull out when they are in such glorious flower.
For now I will let them be and the orange zinnias which showed up alongside them. After all echinacea manages to combine pink and orange.
A humid, misty morning in the sunken garden shows the soft leaved yucca will flower for the second time this year.
I have been working all week at cleaning out the vegetable beds in preparation for the fall planting. We are promised rain for the weekend so I have been planing seeds of pak choi, snow peas, mustard and radish. Come on rain!
