flower power

I've found that as plants mature they really do produce some magnificent shows. This astrantia was purchased last year from the plant lady who keeps a stall outside her front gate. Unfortunately this year I have nearly all her plants already in the garden. As I'm a thrifter I like to get plants from anywhere, and I'm not ashamed to say that I have taken cuttings from the side of the road and gathered seeds.

More lupins for free!!

A new rose purchase this year. Souvenir du Docteur Jamain. Sorry if thats not spelt right.
This is a rose that so Alan tells me in my GW book is suitable for a shady border so voila.

The all consuming lavender bush!

I adore Lavender. I went to Exeter today and wandered around the Craft fair..I ended up at the plant stall and bought three Lavender plants.The perfume was gorgeous ;-)
