Most of the plants were for the front entrance at the end of a quite long driveway.
These few cornflowers I planted from seed direct some months ago. On each side of the drive where it turn out to the road is a quite large magnolia tree. That makes under planting quite tricky because of the many surface roots.
I put in 2 Hostas and a Vireya Rhododendron called Just Peachy. Behind them is a patch of seedling Asters I grew from seed myself in a tray. ( just by the sensor for the lights )
On the opposite side of the drive the garden is a bit smaller ( as yet ) but there I put 2 red Vireyas and a hosta. It will sort of match but not precisely. The magnolias constantly drop leaves on everything below.
Things I planted earlier, in the small side garden where I dug out the box hedge, are now rewarding with colour and pickable roses.
I have also weeded under the 2 cherries I have circular garden around.
The Billington Early plum tree s laden...plums being given away. Loads still to pick.
Maybe I better make some plum sauce. ( they are red fleshed and sweet )
Both sorts of beans ( my scarlet runners and R's small green ones ) are producing profusely.
The tomatoes now cropping well and the sweet corn about a week away from ready.
Finally to prove I did finish smaller Grandson's felt embroidered Ball for him.
