Cottage Garden Bed

The weather is conspiring against weekday visits to the plot, so here is a floral interlude.  This is what I call our cottage garden bed. It is all sown from seed. The lupins at the back were the first to show off

The Californian poppies are being a bit coy, but they put on a display when it is sunny...

and the cornflowers are just coming into their own at the far end.

I'm really pleased this planting has turned out so well.

There are still some surprises left as there are marigolds and Lychnis yet to flower. In the meantime the poppies are stealing the show.
