In the sunny border things have got a bit too pink in the corner nearest the house.
|Bloooming righ now: Allium, Sidalcea, Sanguisorba, Veronicastrum, Salvia, Stachys, Phlox and Nepeta|
Just out of shot the first Anemone flower is open. This is supposed to be Anemone Ruffled Swan but it appears the bloom is a single rather than the semi-double I was expecting.

The Agapanthus pots are also coming into bloom. Agapanthus africanus (right hand side) was a huge clump of bare root plant I picked up for a little over £2 back in February. It filled a 12l pot and bargain of the year in my book.
My favourite spot in the whole garden at the moment. I'm sure I said that last month too!
|Roses, Achillea, Rudbeckia and friends|
Bought as plugs back in February Begonia Glowing Embers are exactly that! These I think are not the tuberous variety, probably not worth the effort to bring through winter.

The beautiful Salvia Amistad. Cuttings from last year's plant, 16 in all, I was hedging my bets. I gave half of them away and the remainder fills gaps in the front garden.
Some more blooms in the front garden.
|Hemerocallis Crimson Pirate|
Rudbeckia Summerina Brown and Orange
Cosmos Chocamocha - Rudbeckia - Helenium Ruby Tuesday
|Helenium Moerheim Beauty|
|Ligularia Brit Marie Crawford and Persicaria amplexicaulis JS Caliente|
I was not surprised to find this Hellebore in bloom up on the top tier. This is the third year in a row it has bloomed in August. But never quite so prolific as this year.
Persicaria Red Dragon blooms getting ready to take over from Digitalis mertonensis.

Hosta Blue Cadet is not being put off by the wildly ways of the Persicaria. I like these two plants together, I must remember to move the Hosta forward a bit next spring. Most of the other Hostas are in bloom now too.

On the arch/trellis, The Wedgewood Rose has had a bit of a tough year. Hydrangea paniculata Pinky Winky is just about to do its thing.

In the shady border, the Polemoniun are getting going for a second time and in the background one of my favourites, Kirengeshoma palmata in the background is also coming into flower.
|Polemonium, Hosta and Heuchera|
Rounding up this month's Bloom Day post are the tiny flower buds of Cyclamen hederifolium just nosing their way from beneath the surface of the soil. Thanks for reading.
