What a beautiful time of year in the garden, the most exciting as we revel in the daily surge in growth and blossoms. The greenest green and such pristine foliage, free from rust and mildew…for now! Mind you, it’s hard to keep up with nature….plants just want to grow so there is incessant potting on and planting out.
This week, we planted 12 rudbeckia Marmalade & 9 achillea Cloth of Gold in the prairie, 5 peony Sarah Bernhardt in the new autumn bed. Lavatera, cosmos & snapdragons in the old autumn bed. 12 dianthus carthusianorum, verbena rigida & salvia Hot Lips in the sunny, dry front garden border. Thalictrum lucidum beside the pond, thalictrum Elin, euphorbia martinii and nicotiana sylvestris in the shady garden. Orange wallflower, gaillardia & dahlia Bishop of Llandaff in the hot bed (cottage garden). Crambe cordifolia in the orchard…….do you think perhaps we have a slight problem..of the plantaholic variety?!
A few photos taken this evening.
