The front garden this morning. The mint recovered well after being beaten down by the rain and because it is so deep rooted isn't suffering at all as yet from the dry weather.

This has just started to flower. I think it's an Acanthus. I'd only previously heard of acanthus scrolls on Victorian furniture - now I realise I've got one. :smile:

I have mentioned the corner of our front garden needing attention after being trampled in next door's construction work...
Blow me down! The most magnificent purple/blue Iris has sprung into bloom among the mayhem. Such a delight to see as I didn't think anything had survived.
