August has been quite warm, indeed rather hot. Just when I was beginning to worry that we had not had rain for a while it then rained rather a lot. This makes it a good month for the garden.
his Anisodentea 'El Royo' flowers pretty much every month of the year. It is a fantastic plant.
In the Conservatory Border the chrysanthemums are starting to flower. I love this copper one.
Whilst in the Pond Border the Hollyhocks are performing brilliantly. I have grown some more from seed so I expect next year to hopefully be quite show. I am very enamoured of hollyhocks.
I end on the pond as is traditional. Yes it is a bit of a bleached out photo but I liked it anyway. The pond has finally cleared after weeks of gloop clogging it up. It has taken a variety of things to clear it so I cannot with confidence name the winning method. His gingerness wanted to be included in the photo so it was churlish to refuse.
Thanks as ever to Helen for hosting this meme.
