|Back garden at Lymehurst B&B|
Usually by this time of year the garden is well past it's best and looking rather sad but due to the regular rainfall this summer and intermittent sunny spells! certain plants have well and truly flourished. The lavenders and laveteria have been amazing.

We have also had lots of beautiful poppies.These Californian poppies look almost unreal as their colour is so vibrant. They self seed and add a wonderful splash of colour
The purple poppies almost have an antiquey look about them.The brilliant thing is that they self seed and don't seem to mind being moved around when in seedling form. I've had lots cropping up in the vegetable patch and have moved them to other parts of the garden. They have very strong stems so have survived all the strong winds without staking unlike the red poppies.
