Lily of the Valley, now open
Yesterday we had rain. All day. And then last night, as the wind howled around the valley, the rain became torrential. I feared the worst.
But, if anything, the garden has prospered. Growth has seemingly exploded overnight and later I will be running around with plant supports, somewhat belatedly I know.
Geum ‘Totally Tangerine’
I love Geums. They flower on and off all summer and provide a froth of colour in the borders. I make no apology for two more:
Geum ‘Flames of Passion’
Geum ‘Lemon Drops’
I thought I had lost this one. It’s one of the pheasant’s favourite places for a dust bath!
Magnolia x loebneri ‘Leonard Messel’
My one and only bloom on this newly planted shrub.
Geranium macrorrhizum ‘Album’
Bluebells on the riverbank
