This is the Buddleia Davidii "Royal Red" plant that I bought from Duchy Nurseries back in the Spring. I love the colour (though it is hardly red!).

This fern is also one of the plants I bought from Duchy of Cornwall Nurseries. I have been very pleased with what I bought from them. The young fronds are a beautiful bronze colour, which gradually fades to a yellowish green as they mature.
The seed pods form on the undersides of the leaves. I wonder if this plant will be easy to propagate?
The Hypericum flowers have gone now, and have been replaced by these little berries, which start off white and then develop a bright pink colour.
The Dogwood bushes are always giving me something new to look at. Right now most of them are covered with delicate little white flowers.
This is Coreopsis "Early Sunrise". It's an untidy plant, but you have to admit that the flowers liven things up a bit!
The potted Chives are having another lease of life. After their first flowering I cut them right down, and they have sprung up again very vigorously. The backdrop for this photo is the Oxalis "Burgundy Wine".
Lots of the Oregano and Marjoram plants are flowering now. The bees will be happy!
The Swiss Chard is bolting but even that can look quite decorative. I have cut the flower stalks down to ground level in the hope that the plants will produce another batch of leaves.
