Pretty photos, Sheila, but the one I like the best is the last....Dishy Mingle...Bishop's children Dahlia looks so like my Totally Tangerine Dahlia.

Nice to see some more of your flowers, Sheila! My Bishop's Children Dahlias are flowering now on the balcony as well. I have orange & a very dark red.

I like that "Dishy Mingle"! πŸ˜‚

Lots of lovely colourful flowers still blooming wonderfully, Sheila! I love that bright purple aster! A real eye catcher. The dahlia is a real pop of sunshine too!

Thank you very much you lovely people (Julia, David, Eileen and Kate)!

A wonderful selection ,Sheila,and I too,love the Dahlia,'Bishops Children',the Asters,especially the one with the Japanese Anemones,and the Lavender Geranium is so pretty too. I forgot all about Bacopa this year (senior moment) as I do love them,and they seem to last much longer than Lobelia,which is what I got instead, this year. Memo to self,to make a note ! You have such a pretty well kept garden, it's a credit to you :o) x

Pretty plants. I like the Corydalis (or Coreopsis). I would like to buy some, l love blue.

3 Sep, 2021

 

Thanks Josee, I like blue too. Sorry about my terrible memory!

Thanks Paul, what a kind comment πŸ™‚.

Your plants are looking pretty good close-up too Sheila, lots of colour still.
Your Coreopsis or Corydalis is actually Caryopteris :) I can never grow it so I am envious of yours lol ...

4 Sep, 2021

 

Thank you so much Hywel, now I know and will try to remember Caryopteris! :))

5 Sep, 2021

 

Put a label with it Sheila, I have to do that otherwise I tend to forget.

5 Sep, 2021

 

I did plant a Caryopteris once & it died on me, but a Cerotastigma is still growing strong & flowering at the moment, but it really needs to be in a sunnier position. Still, it's a nice blue.

Thanks Hywel … good thinking πŸ™‚.

Sheila, I'm about a week behind on blogs and photos but am trying to catch up now. Michael is watching highlights of a footie match, no idea which one!

You have some smashing plants in your garden, I do like that Dahlia and the Salvia. I wonder if you have watched GW from last night yet? If not, look out for the man with the Salvia collection!

11 Sep, 2021

 

Thanks very much Shirley … yes, I watched GW and was astonished at the variety of Salvias. I am so glad to have discovered them, through a member of my gardening group who gave everyone cuttings a few years ago. Now we all have the same (unnamed) one!

11 Sep, 2021

 

Excellent . . . the power of sharing! :o)

12 Sep, 2021

 

Still plenty of colour Sheila, its the same with many of our gardens at this time of the year as some plants are beginning to fade away, you have some lovely ones, thankyou for sharing...

Thank you Lincs, very kind of you πŸ™‚.
