Sunday Selections # 204
Welcome back to Sunday Selections!
This once-a- week-meme was originally begun by Kim of Frog Ponds Rock, as a way to showcase some of the many photos we all take, but don't get around to showing on our blogs.
The rules are very simple:-
1. post photos of your choice, old or new, under the Sunday Selections title
2. link back to me, River, somewhere in your post
3. leave me a comment so that I know you've joined in and can come over and see what you've posted.
4. hop on over to TheElephant’s Child to see more of her wonderful photos.
Andrew often joins in too.
I usually go with a theme for my Sunday Selections and this week I have photos of my garden yet again, because there are a couple of new things.
white agapanthus. I like how this glows in the moonlight.
I bought a six-pack,
and planted them in two groups of three. If I let them self-seed the groups will become large clumps eventually; instead I will collect the seed and start them in seed raising trays and plant them where I want them, then maybe let them self seed for a few years.
the bigger marigolds are growing well, no dead heads yet to be collecting seed from.
my pelargonium-in-a-pot has more blooms than last year
I love these, I must get some in different colours. I had cuttings of a dark red, but they got buried in the mulch and vanished.
I like the way the colour appears lighter or darker at different times of the day.
the leaves are browning off too often and I suspect it is potbound.
In the autumn I'll plant it out in the garden.
the stocks aren't flowering as profusely as I hoped, possibly I have over watered, stocks don't like wet feet. I'll collect the seed when it forms, and hope they grow. They are from a store bought packet of seeds and second generation seeds often don't grow.
