… Verbena bonariensis, stems of which have suddenly shot up to about 6 foot tall around the garden and are just beginning to flower.
Much as I love this plant, I shall have to thin it out a little in this area, as it has eschewed transparency to form rather an impenetrable barrier near our little terrace.
In the greenhouse, there is more verbena raised from seed; a shorter form (V. Obsession Bordeaux) in the hanging baskets that I have just planted up, ready to grace the newly-fixed brackets around the house (thanks to King of the Hill).
V is also for the Versatile Blogger Award. I am very touched that Kate at katiepede.wordpress.com recently nominated me for this award. Thank you, Kate. However (bah humbug alert), I must confess that I have always been rather stubborn about not partaking in chain-events, in whatever format, however well-intentioned. I hope that you will forgive me for not joining in. I am thrilled that people read and comment on my ramblings here, and it’s lovely to feel appreciated, but I just don’t feel comfortable with this syntax…
As I wrote to Kate:
I just feel a bit uncomfortable about that kind of thing. Not sure if it’s just my anti-chain-thing stance, or rebelling against the system 🙂 or just not feeling obliged to put prescribed amounts of personal information out there (there’s plenty in my scrawlings already!).
Do visit her blog, though; which overflows with enthusiasm for nature, with a variety of plants and wildlife.
