Magical....what is that lovely river of mauve in the first photo ?
Just in from a continuing battle with weeds ( and an aching back ! ).....your photos remind me what gardening is all about. Thanks !

It's Phlox, Sive. Flowers don't last long though.

I meant to do some weeding this weekend but other events have overtaken me.

Great colours, Kindred Spirit. And very lush. I love the splash of deep blue from the ajuga - I was admiring mine earlier today. They were glowing, despite the murky day.
I presume those photos are recent; it is very noticeable how much further advanced your garden is than mine. Latitude, I suppose?

Saturday, the 3rd, Good Guy.

The trouble with Ajuga is that it is extrememly invasive. It won't mind its manners.

I know what you mean. Mine is even invading the lawn - shows how unhealthy my grass is!
But it's a damn good ground cover and the way I garden is sort of mixed up, anyway, so I don't expect strict deliniations very often, so I'll forgive it it's vigour.
Growth wise, you're at least a week ahead of me.
