Small pergola attached to the garden shed is finally done. I am quite pleased with it. Now I need to plant the area around it and finish the paving underneath. Being placed in the western corner of my garden, this will be my private, secluded sitting place.
The rose 'Bleu Mangeta' is planted by one of the poles. As the matter of fact, it is planted in Autumn but, at the time I already knew where the poles will stand. It is a vigorous rambler rose, that will overgrow pergola eventually. This rose tolerates many unfavourable growing conditions, such as shade, poor soil or cold so, I expect it to grow well. The flowers are fragrant and have a great clusters of pink-violet flowers.

Summer heaths seized and the garden came alive again after the rain. The mornings are quite fresh, between 10 and 15 °C, and the days are not so hot any more. Many roses provide the second bloom. Asters open the very first flowers.
And here, there are some of the present garden bloomers on the photo above: Solanum, Russelia, Verbena, some Hostas, Agapanthus, Lonicera...
