I was just wandering around my garden at 9.30pm with a glass of wine thinking “I wonder if I should post something on my blog? Has it been too long? Will the world forgive me for finding golf and fly fishing again? Does my garden still merit a mention or two? And then this Turkish sage, Phlomis russeliana, grown from seed three years ago and only just performing well and glowing in the twilight reminded me why I love my garden so much and why I like sharing it with others. So, here I am again! Old camera, new laptop, significant changes to show and tell, ready for a season of goodies.
Sometimes the oddest things happen for no reason. This Monarda doesn’t know when to stop and has produced double decker flowers. It is only showing it’s Lamiaceae family tendencies like it’s cousins Phlomis, Verbena, Salvia, Nepeta and Stachys but, who knows, Thompson & Morgan might make me rich yet!
