Pictured between the showers…Dahlias, salvias, eryngium, helenium, lilies just opening, box ball (from Ikea), shasta daises.
Hydrangea, which came with the house although this year it has flowered much better.
The dark stems are a good contrast
Helenium (Sneezeweed) starting to flower, despite rain!
New borders are now looking good with shaggy dahlia, salvia, bellflower, white form of valerian, eryngium, shasta diasy and holyhock in bud with allium seed heads
