Summer Bloomings

Flower notes
The zinnias are a new entry; I'm very pleased with them: lovely colours, long-lasting and reflowering, plus they love the position on the sunny aia. Next year I hope to plant many more.

The agapanthus came all the way from Australia, brought by my mother in her suitcase, like the family jewels. They were in our garden in Melbourne so it is good to have a little bit of our old garden at Le Ripe. They do quite well here - this is their first year in tubs - but do not flourish as they do through Australia's mild winters. Each year they die back and have to start all over again in the spring, so the incremental growth is slow.
