Just a few flowers that are blooming on the rockery.

I think the rockery has been quite a surprise this spring and summer, maybe due to the mixed bag of warm sunshine and heavy rain.
The little plants are doing well, spreading at last and flowering well. I’ve had to remove several over the years due to them not being suitable on the sharp slope. Other reasons for some not doing so well is due to insects nibbling or birds tossing and tearing at the smaller ones to find food.
Hopefully, it will continue to do well and eventually I will see no soil, just greenery and flower.

lovely selection of flowers and photo's Kate, think the little yellow one in particular is really pretty, according to my not so reliable plant id app its calling it a broadleaf stonecrop, is that right.

Thank you, Davey! That’s very kind. Yes, you’re right there - it’s a stonecrop! I’ve thought about downloading the app, sounds spot on!
