There's been lots of colour in the garden over the summer and it's been great to see the bees buzzing away happily day after day. I've added a few new plants to the garden this year - astrantia, achillea, veronica, lobelia, polemonium and have found them all great additions. The only minor complaint I have is that some of the plant labels on them indicated a colour that turned out to be different than what I got, however, suppose this could be down to the soil, etc. So I'm happy enough. Suppose a garden centre wouldn't really take a return based on 'the colour didn't quite suit'! (that would be an interesting conversation)!
