Some photo's of my favourite part of the garden. Last year I had grasses here, and it did look quite splendid. However, the harsh winter took its toll on several of them, so I decided to put dahlias here instead this year. I think I like it better.
I like the combination of Dahlias Bishop of Llandaff and David Howard, but will have to remember to put David Howard behind the Bishop next year.
This tower of Morning Glory is a happy 'change of plan'. I originally planted sweet peas to grow up the tower of bamboo canes, but in the heat of April and May they did not do well and just flopped about. I usually grow a few Morning Glory plants to grow up canes in a large pot, but decided to plant them in place of the Sweet Peas. They have grown so much better than in the pot, and an added bonus is that some of the Sweet Peas also started to grow and mingle. This planting is something I will repeat next year.
