Anomalies in the garden 

by Wendy Syddall

As many of my readers will know I sowed and then planted pale yellow cosmos but today i have noticed this pink one flowering! Now I do like pink in the garden, however, not when I’m expecting pale yellow.

Secondly, last year I ordered 3 blue scabious plants online from a company I won’t name but whose plants are often dead on arrival! The plant is now flowering and guess what, its not blue, it’s white. Once again I am very fond of white in the garden but blue would have made a nice change. Now there is a hydrangea also in that flower bed which Daddy put ericaceous compost round so there is a tiny chance it’s changed the colour of this plant as well but we may never know. It’ll be interesting to see if the other plants turn out blue!
