    Sweet Alyssum, planted at the front of the border. It is a good one for self-seeding, I love free plants. A  small plant with a big scent. Bees love it.

Malva moschata or Musk Mallow grows to about 3ft and flowers from June to August. It is easily grown from seed. It will tolerate some shade and likes a moist soil. A perennial, apparently all parts of the plant are edible.

The Rose in the top corner of the polytunnel continues to bloom.

I spy a little doggie through the Cornflowers.

 This Polygonum, don’t know the species, has small pink flowers but lots of them. Like all of this family it is invasive but not as much as it’s much feared relative Japenese Knotweed. In this neglected corner it can be left to it’s own devices.

Interesting fungus taking over this old tree stump,

and Badger and Mole keep guard by the garden gate.
