Signs Of Summer

A field of wild Poppies between Wetherby and Harrogate. I rolled the window down and took the photo as we waited in traffic to get to the great Yorkshire show last Thursday.
Its another sign of summer for me along with the buzzing of bee's and warm sunshine.
I have had a lazy day just watching the birds in the garden, looking at all the flowers and buds on plants that have not flowered yet.
The right border looks good with pale blue Catnip Sixhills Giant flowering next to the Lilac coloured Buddeleja, and the White scented Freesias flowering over the green edging onto the path.The purple Salvias continue to flower beneath the blue and purple, along with the Blue tinged Cerinthes and purple stars of the Verbena Bonarensis.
The left border has two toned French Marigolds, Bright Orange Calendulas, and the Apricot coloured Lady Emma Hamilton. My white Astrantias are in bloom under the purple coloured Cranesbill Geraniums.
The sun has been shining today, and the rain never came. It has been a perfect Sunday gardening day. Just time to smell the Roses and admire the flowers.
