I'll just caption them and not write reams. I think the pics will speak for themselves!
|Bearded Iris, one in shade, one in sun - couldn't decide which one I liked best so posting both!|
|Rosa 'Gertrude Jekyll', a beautifully perfumed repeat flowering rose.|
|Weigela florida 'Alexander'|
|Unknown variety of Weigela, |
grown from a cutting taken from a friend's garden.
|Rose and Clematis arch. This rose (see name below) smells divine!|
|Rosa 'Zephirine Drouhin', a thornless climbing old French rose.|
|Clematis 'The President' with a sleepy Bumble Bee on it.|
|View from the window in my cellar/mud room |
when the Peony was in bloom (a very brief season!).
|Same view, different camera, more depth of field!|
|Smoke Bush - Cotinus coggygria 'Royal Purple'.|
|Front flower bed in June |
(shame about the raspberries and blackberries in the background,
but hey they taste good!).
|Shady bed round the back which has turned into a jungle |
and needs some work done on it to thin out some of the self seeders,
but not whilst it is still looking good!
|A blast of colour with wild Heartsease Violas and Gaillardia.|
|Self seeded Feverfew (Tanacetum parthenium) - |
odd that I only had single flowered ones yet this is a double!
|Sweet William (Dianthus barbatus).|
|Border by my cellar/mud room - it doesn't|
get the sun until about 4pm so that's why
I put my Hydrangeas here.
|Lavatera has gone mad and has flopped over since this picture! |
It's a real blast of colour though.
|White Astrantia major which self seeds too much and this is an unusual photo |
as there appear to be no insects on it (they love it)!
|A very kind Bumble Bee came along just as I was taking some photos of this Poppy!|
|An unknown yellow flowered plant in my Wildflower Meadow for Pollinators, |
with Phacelia in the background.
I'll do another 'What's in Bloom' post in a few weeks as already much has changed.
