GBBD: Flowers in the Rain

Click to enlarge image if needed. From left to right and top to bottom: Fuchsia 'Genii', Anthemis tinctoria 'E.C. Buxton', Cosmos 'Chocamocha', Dahlia 'Moonfire', mophead Hydrangea, Fuchsia 'Garden News', Campanula with leaves, doorstep Cyclamen, strawberry, Sedum, Centaurea montana, Helianthus, Fuchsia 'Hawkshead', Clematis cirrhosa 'Freckles', Clematis 'Elsa Spath', and tender Cyclamen.

I'm actually on holiday as of yesterday, but I'm sure Friday's drenched flowers will be in bloom today - as is my Dahlia Delight - because we're having a spell of mild, rainy and windy weather at the moment. So whilst the garden's definitely very 'backendish', there's still quite a lot of floral bounty around. It just takes a little more time to find it. Lesson learnt this month: Cyclamen has a lovely ethereal scent. I hadn't noticed that before, but then I haven't put some in the hanging basket next to the front door before either.

Garden Bloggers' Blooms Day is hosted by Carol at May Dreams Gardens.

NB I have posts set up for the whole of the week, but I'm going internet free whilst I'm away, so I won't be answering your comments until after I get back on Saturday.

  7. Your flowers seem to be enjoying the rain, VP; I think I'm in love with the chocamocha cosmos:) Hope you are enjoying your holiday and that the sun is shining wherever you are!

    Enjoyed your last post--looks like the shopper on the right is considering a similar purchase:) Actually, my kids always enjoyed riding on any kind of cart like this.

  9. Oh, that crazy English weather and its resulting fuchsiaosity! If only they were hardy here. Hope the rain holds off wherever you're vacationing... unless you prefer it soggy.

  10. Your shrub Fuschia is magnificent and so inspiring. I had no idea Cyclamen had a scent. Maybe I should get one this winter. Then again, that's not really fair to the poor plant.
