The late flowering Clematis are now blooming. Does anyone remember the Clematis I moved in springtime? The one with the humongous root ball that caused me to have a high blood pressure reading at the docs a couple of hours later. As you can see in the large picture, it has done remarkably well, reaching up and along the trellis. I'm so glad I took that risk now. It looks great meandering it's way along the top.

The top bed, which is the subject of my EMOV, Persicaria overload, just about describes it. I used the Persicaria to fill the gaps between the shrubs. They like it there, as you can clearly see!

Yet more Persicaria, along with Crocosmia Lucifer and Helenium Moerheim Beauty providing for the pollinators. Interestingly I've seen very few butterflies. With the perfect summer last year and the even more perfect summer this year, I would have thought they'd be about in their droves this year. Alas, this is not the case.
Heading back down towards the house, Persicaria Red Dragon, is making a bid to out grow everything round about it. It's flowers are like the Helianthus are rather sparse.

If we head down the side path towards the front garden, in the side garden, which is predominantly a spring/early summer border, the Cyclamen are sprouting here and there. Bought and planted in flower last year, I'm glad to see their return. Nestled in amongst some ferns, they brighten up this wee spot.

Well that's about my lot this bloom day. I'm joining with other garden bloggers over at May Dream Gardens that are sharing what's flowering in their gardens in the middle of each month. See you there!
