A selection from the cold and windy 2016 spring and summer photographs, which look a bit like winter ones.
< Perennial sunflowers in September producing a bright cheerful hedge full
of bees and butterflies. They have stood up to the strong winds without being supported, but have required watering every two days during the summer drought to get them to this stage, because they are growing a band of very poor soil on a low bank,, full of stones with very little soil depth, so a reasonable amount of compost has been added. There are four plants, which were added by dividing two plants grown last year, and each oif these plants will double in size if care is taken. .
