                            Here are some photos from a wander around the garden this afternoon...

                            D103B409-111D-4777-A912-434A606F7D0D.jpeg
                            An old fashioned pink, right next to the front door = divine fragrance!

                            0D568A38-FC81-4F28-B4DA-B0060C201949.jpeg
                            Campanula persicifolia - this is a seedling that I’ve left in the barrel.


                            A232B9BE-523F-4228-AFB4-34CA8F6BE136.jpeg
                            A climbing iceberg rose, that seems to be happy - who knows where it’s roots have got to now

                            E7686361-8764-4A6D-B99A-96BBE7845010.jpeg
                            Summer jasmine - again the first year that we have had a “show” of flowers. On previous years, it’s been one or two flowers hidden in the foliage

                            0C8ADC8B-0B79-4C36-8907-2A1B951D0ED3.jpeg
                            I love this ballerina rose!

                            C9DDA2FC-1C4D-4B3F-98F3-41F49569B41A.jpeg
                            No one has told my foxgloves that they are biennial. This is what they do in their third year!

                            CBC50F1C-389B-4A38-9F81-7087332F770D.jpeg
                            A lovely acer (can’t remember the variety off-hand)

                            CDF03FF5-F2F4-4049-A9DC-11D588A26C1C.jpeg
                            Results from a mixed pack of “cottage flowers”. I don’t know what the dianthus is, or the blue ?gentian behind it?

                            D5C1A80C-78BA-4D5D-B09E-12A881B7B2C6.jpeg
                            one of the agastaches coming into flower

                            F0D1094C-A950-4682-BC08-38CA0E77A06C.jpeg

                            Good job I’m not over-proud for a lush green swathe - let me introduce you to the lawn!
