The garden is at its zenith and while we have some weeks ahead of us, I’m aware that the bonanza won’t last forever, which only serves to heighten my appreciation.
I cleared my garden paths of the abundant tangle of flopping stems, mostly white flowering tobacco (Nicotiana alata) and yellow/orange calendula (C. officinalis).
A large clump of heartleaf aster (Symphyotrichum cordifolium) also needed trimming, so that became my lacy greens.
Nothing goes to waste if I can find a vase for it (which as you might have guessed, I have plenty)!
The special features this week are tall stems of Ligularia ‘The Rocket’ as well as golden zinnias (Z. elegans ‘County Fair Mix’) and dahlia (D. ‘Tiki Torch’).
