In the midst of a heat wave, - the hot weather is not kind to the garden. The Shasta Daisies have had to be almost completely dead-headed, and it seems such a short while since they started to bloom.
One of the new roses has bloomed - a pretty pink with a spicy smell, and as it is close to the sage plant there is a slight aroma of the herb, as well, as you stoop to inhale.
This is a straight out of the camera photo - I waited for the light....
The pots are doing well, and the hollyhocks and sweet peas have almost completely covered the patio. Through the cracks in the tiles the thyme runs rampant, blooming wildly and begging to be cut and dried.
Tomorrow morning I will take a picture of the barn flower, - it is swaying gracefully out in the evening breeze, completely dominating the centre of the garden. Oh, it is a wild place, this Similkameen version of an English Garden.
