We’d been meaning to visit Bluebell Cottage for a while and weren’t disappointed. There were some signs of flowers going to seed earlier than usual due to the long hot and dry spell, but the overall effect was glorious and the pollinators were having a field day – literally. I can hardly believe I managed to take this picture of the garden without a butterfly or bee in the foreground (there is a blurry bee a few rows back).
Shared for Cee’s Flower of the Day. This is Helenium ‘Moerheim Beauty’ – such a staple in gardens here and seemingly unaffected by the drought. Bluebell Cottage Gardens is one of Cheshire’s Gardens of Distinction.
