Hello and welcome to Garden Thursday with Virginger, Glimmer and Trooper.
Well the really hots have gone, but still warm and humid. So we all are pacing ourselves to make sure we don't fall over in the heat! Well, Glimmer falls over whenever she wants. But that is just her!
Some more of our plants. Mum has tried to put in things that are good for birds, bees and butterflies. We need more of them, plus they are fun to watch fly around.
This is a globe thistle. We have two of these, one by the house, the other back in the garden by the fence. These plants were here when mum moved in. She thought the one by the house went away with the dungeon work a few years ago, but it has come back.
One that mum put in is another bee balm plant. This one is furry tall and a different color too.
Mum says it is also called wild bergamont or its official Latin name Monarda. Fancy!
