Rose ‘The Lark Ascending’
Raindrops on roses.
Peony ‘Bowl of Beauty’
Whiskers on kittens.
Iris ‘Jane Phillips’
These are a few of my favourite things.
We haven’t really revisited the terraces since all the moving and shaking I did last year so I thought you might be interested to see how they are looking now. There are still a few gaps. And there’s not much going on at the far end. But I’m leaving that bit for now, for reasons that will become obvious in the next week or so.
The afternoon ice cream spot. Will it be salted caramel today? … yum.
Erigeron karvinskianus, beginning to get a foothold in the wall
x Halimiocistus wintonensis
Destined for one of those gaps.. part of the Burncoose haul.
As is this..
Cornus kousa ‘Wieting’s Select’
Up on the bank the Cornus trees are flowering
Cornus kousa ‘Satomi’
But something weird is happening to this one. It has sprouted a branch with different leaves and blooms entirely..
I suspect the lower branch is coming from below the graft. It’s about to get the chop.
From the big and blowsy..
…to the small and select
Cistus argenteus ‘Silver Pink’
Summer is bursting out all over
Now if someone could just tweak the thermostat up a notch all would be well.
