Garage Garden – July

Here’s some photos of the garage garden taken near the end of July.

A huge thank you to the mystery gardener who came by after all the rain and did a fantastic job on the weeding!

As you can see, the mystery plants at the back turned out to have glorious bright pink flowers. The lucky placing of orange nasturtiums and calendula next to them makes for an eye-popping colour combo that brings a smile to my face every time I go past.

The scented seed mix has flowered with nemesia in various colours, and some pretty pink and white flowers that I don’t know, and we’ve got oriental poppies flowering all over the place.

There are some wild flowers in there too, but I like it that way. What do you think?
