What's Blooming This Week?

White Cosmos have begun self-seeding through The Old Cottage Garden and are popping up in delightfully unexpected places.

These flowers were one of Monet's favourites in the gardens of Giverny, adding what he described as "chatoyer" or "shimmer"Monet sprinkled the seed of white Cosmos through all the plantings that he undertook over so many years of experimentation in his garden, which was for him a laboratory in which to research the effects of colour and light.  

We could do worse than to follow Monet's our garden here at The Drip.
