Evening peeps cut my foxgloves back this evening only to reveal my #delphinium hiding behind them so at least I get to enjoy another flower that's opened 💙💙💙 still hot outside so I'm catching a few rays to top up the tan n chillaxing now before I water the garden. Have a lovely evening 😆

@rachelbrooks once they get established they are ok and are left alone it's the young shoots that suffer so determined to keep this one as it really fills a corner of the border for height 😊
