Allium christophii with some blowsy peonies as background for its firework display.
And somewhere else in the garden with a rose.
It seeds around so has migrated all over the place  :)

This orchid is one that I've had since 1985.
The pale flower has been open a week or so, the smaller flower opened last night.
It's nicely fragrant (standard rose fragrance, combined with a hint of vanilla and clove).

Bit of a different one from me. A peace lily flowering. A run of the mill houseplant, but I have it growing out of an aquarium. I blame the winter lockdown and watching too many other peopleís projects on YouTube   :blush:  :lol:

Anyway I am quite happy with my new tank. An underwater view as well so you can see the effect I was after.

A combo I have in a pot together - Salvia  Nachtvlinder and Coreopsis Mango Punch.

They will have to go in greenhouse over winter, but I think I might also try and split them this autumn or next spring and make more, as they make a lovely mix and are both growing like mad  :)

I donít know about you lot, but I needed some vibrant colour today on a wet and blowy Sunday that is more autumn than summer   ::)

Anyway, some summer sun flower wise with Gladiolus Papilio Ruby, Calceolaria Kentish Hero and Thunbergia Brownie. The first 2 will need greenhouse protection for the winter. The last is an annual usually grown as a climber, but I have it trailing over a water butt to disguise it from view  :)

This bed of vincas are all volunteers that popped up this spring from seed dropped by last year's.

They are drought and heat tolerant and the deer don't eat them.  I don't encourage them more than throwing down a little fertilizer once in a while and a little water when it's really dry.

Some orchids prefer growing on a piece of wood!

The flowers off this species are only fragrant at night (pollinated by moths).

This chap was self-seeded, and grew in a row of fruit bushes!

At one stage, it had over twenty heads on it!

I quite like the idea of multi-flowered sunflowers, can you guys recommend some varieties? I've only ever grown the tall single flower types.

That's another beauty, Snows!

P1P, we usually grow a packet of Unwins 'Toy Shop', which is a mixture of lots of seeds, but they don't get too tall! The one above is probably a reverted one from the previous year!

Last year we had one like this growing in the runner beans, and it reached at least 10', well above the closest bean plant! I had to saw the stem to get it down!
