Six on Saturday 7 July 2018

Although we have the worst drought since 1976, some flowers and shrubs and bravely plodding on.
Here are my six on Saturday; the first four are in the flag colours of England and Sweden as we have family members in both.
 Paul's Scarlet (for which I was placed third in our gardening club show)
 A reliable daisy with blooms much smaller that usual this year
 Hyndrangea Bluebird, a smaller variety of shrub
