I am still discovering what I can grow here in Crete.
I didn't know love-in-a-mist would do so well. I haven't sown any this year. These are all self sown. ;D ;D ;D

They really do make a misty effect en masse, don't they?

Lovely to see so much colour in your garden, Daisy. Gorgeous Cosmos (Bidens) and Nigella. Do you manage it all on fortnightly watering?
