There are very tall sunflowers in a neighbour’s garden.Our garden is full of flowers too and this is the bunch we took to friends this evening when we went for supper.
A day late as I was busy all day yesterday hearing about the climate emergency and how we can each be doing our bit.
July is turning out to be a month of abundance, many more blooms that I remember from last year. Perhaps I have been more vigilant about feeding and certainly the sun and rain mix has been beneficial.
1. Day Lilies
2. Alium with bees
3. Trailing Begonia called Million Kisses. We had these in all the chimneys and pots the year of our Golden Wedding.
4 Clematis and Dahlia in Suffragette colours – in the back garden, not in my Suffragette garden in the front.
6. Poppy Seeds to save. There have been dozens of Poppies, all from seed saved last year and we have labelled the ones we like the best for harvesting this year.

The Ingleheart Singers have been on their annual boat trip tonight and it was brilliant. We all take food to share on the trip out from Falmouth to St Mawes, then we entertain the punters in the local hostelry and then board the boat for the trip back home. We sing all the way back, entertaining those on the quay side, those in their boats and onshore in Falmouth.
Our drive into Truro this morning was such a treat – a couple of miles of central reservation planted with wild flowers – red and white, yellow and green – so lovely that I smiled all the way! Photos taken from a moving car – not by the driver.
