The buds of the Cosmos
I worked on this part of the garden this week. I planted a new tree for Autumn colour. My wonderful Echium's have finally "had it" - they are not long livers, and have been in about 5 years - and all that rain just soaked them out. I left a couple of little ones, but pulled the old ones out. It's left a big gap, which is a different look in my back yard, but I'm sure it will soon fill up.

Just Joey, is one of my favourite roses as it is such a great performer.
. . . and I just LOVE Papa Milland. I moved this one at the wrong time, and thought I'd lost it, but it has come back stronger than ever and is full of flowers, and the perfume is divine.
