With the drought, heat and water restrictions it is so easy to become disheartened garden wise........ thats why I am quite happy with this garden it is about 10 or so weeks old....starting to take off and fun to play with :D much more fun than looking at the patchy weedy old lawn.... :cry:

Very cute! I think that pink salvia has to be one of the most underrated plants going!

Tilly...your garden is looking good & as you say when you have to contend with the "elements" it can be disheartening... I guess I am lucky that I don't have water restrictions or fires etc to deal with unlike others (although I am very water conscious must admit)...I admire all of you who keep perservering !!!!

A great patch of colour. The salvias are great triers.

Thank you all.....

Pam re the pink salvias agree about being underrated....I was probably given it (the original) about 19 years ago.....does pop up everywhere... always looks healthy and the foilage ain't half bad :) great filler...
