I had Polish spirit in my previous garden Shirley if I remember correctly it was like this one ..

I agree with Amy. I don’t see that red in the anthers of Etoile Violette.

I'd definitely go for Polish Spirit.

Thanks Waddy ... the heat we are having is not helping the buds ... I think they are just shrivelling up day by day ... :o((

Oh what a shame. Perhaps a good drink and spraying the leaves in the morning might help it to recover.

Hmm, I think a good drink and a spray would do me the world of good too! This heat is too much for me these days ... :o((

Dotty, there are now seven more blooms but they're really small. Oh well, better than none at all!

It’s the dry weather....lots of our flowers are much smaller...

I seem to be shrinking (height wise) this year!

The heat's been too much for me too Shirley. Poor sleeping and even too hot to sit outside and enjoy the garden. Thankfully today has been almost 10c lower, much more bareable and hopefully a better nights sleep tonight.

Waddy, I used to love the hot Summer days but find it all a bit too much now. This afternoon we had a little rain, nothing much, but at least it is cooler now. The duvet is not being used, just a cover! Hope you sleep well tonight ... :o)
