I am now allowed to sit for short periods at the table on the back patio. This is my view.

 



 



All of the larkspurs are self sown. I am glad I didn't pull them out earlier, for the sake of tidyness.

As always, your garden is fantastic and a great inspiration. Good to hear that you are on the way to recovery. Look after yourself and, as you are allowed to go ever further into your garden, keep us posted so that we can rediscover it along with you. Thanks for the hours of pleasure you have given me and others over the last few years looking at the photos of your marvellous garden :)
I have a small garden in Rome, Italy. Some open soil, some concrete, some paved. Temperatures in winter occasionally down to 0C. Summer temperatures up to 40C in the shade. There are never watering restrictions but, of course, there is little natural water for much of June, July and August.

The larkspurs have amazed me with their fecundity. There are MASSES of seedlings coming up. I took two trays of seedlings that I had potted up to a quiz night last night. Luckily, people were happy to take them home.
My team also won the quiz!!!
