I am after a more light and frothy hardy annual today and I have been rewarded by the appearance of my first shy cornflower.
Some of the Orlaya Grandiflora are trying to follow suit.
I love autumn sown hardy annuals; they provide green in the garden over winter, they are always stronger plants than spring sown and just when you have forgotten about them they shout, “Here we are!”. I no longer need to lovingly look at last years dried cornflowers...
move over .... the fresh ones have arrived and so the beautiful seasonal cycle continues in earnest.
