Summer has bought with it rain followed by warm days – followed by rain. Growth has been amazing – it is only now in early January that we can feel the heat and the grass is drying off.
Rosa di Pergolato
The roses have been magnificent. We planted Lambs Ears with an artichoke border around the Rosa di Pergolato -plus geraniums and carnations just for more color. The result was so much better than we expected even if the Lamb’s Ears got away from us and had to be severely cut back.
The Perennial garden was a blaze with color AND the first and only Alium appeared – even though we planted about 15 bulbs – it was a beauty though.Another
Another Secret Garden – On the Bank
We put a gate at the top of the bank which leads to a path that gives you a view of the whole back garden – and best thing is you are totally hidden. You just walk past the white seat and follow the stairs.
