Monarda

Last year I grew Monarda from seed.

This year it has started to flower

I love it!

And so do the bees

(But my neighbour says it is a silly looking flower!)

  4. lol is your neighbour blind? Monada is an elegant and structural bloom much more striking than say delphinium blooms which crowd together and shout at the passerby!

    • Lol – No not blind, but she is a potter so maybe the shape is a bit spiky for her, no smooth rounded sides 🙂

      Thanks so much for visiting Rosalind
