The drumstick alliums (Allium Sphaerocephalon) have come into full bloom, and are attracting masses of bees. It makes a change – usually, it’s mainly bumble bees in my garden.
Elsewhere, the agapanthus is in full flower: an almost incandescent blue in the shade of the fence. The geranium on the patio has more flowers than I’ve ever seen on it before, and the wandflowers are nodding gracefully up by the pond. The largest tomato on the Black Russian is now the size of my fist, but only vaguely thinking about changing colour and ripening.
