Brilliant

The Brilliant (Sedum spectabile ‘Brilliant’) is blooming beautifully.

It is a new variety I bought this year and I like the color. The others I have are variations of darker pink.

Most of the other flowers are now gone and it makes the sedums stand out. The first frost came few days ago but does not yet affect hardy plants like sedums which are going to continue blooming several weeks from now.

Elke

The Elkes (Geranium sanguineum ‘Elke’) are doing fine. They made it through the winter and have been blooming the whole summer.

Bought few more to the new flowerbed I have been building to have some reliable bloomers in it.

Their flowers are a bit delicate when it comes to rain and wind but new ones emerge often so it is not a big problem.

Design Impression

Darwin tulips are at their best. Design Impression is a variety I have not tried before but seems to be a very nice one.

The spring has been a good one for the tulips up here in the north – not to dry and not too warm.

After several sunny and beautiful days we are going to have few rainy ones. A bit pity because I still have plenty of things to do in the garden.

Windsor

Windsor is the last of the garden phloxes to bloom but goes well with the white ones.

Tried to find new colors from the garden shop I visited but the hot July has made all the saplings dry and shaggy. I guess I buy more in the spring.

This July was the hottest one ever recorded and I can see it from my plants. Not that pretty sight . Too much is too much.

Well I am enjoying the warmth. Laying in a hammock and knowing that the autumn is here soon.
