A picture post with words!
|I'm watching you!!|
|I do love my perennial wallflowers - they give colour month after month after month . . .|
|The aquilegias have a much shorter flowering time but, oh, they are so very pretty and delicate - and sometimes there's a second showing later on, so double value!|
|As I can now say with authority - phlox subulata 'Candystripes'. Not that I bought this for its name, I bought it because it is pretty and interesting. I wonder if I can split it - must look that up! It would look nice round the front too.|
|Lavender is one of my favourites, although these don't have the scent that the 'ordinary' variety does. They are more for their looks and they do a good job in that department!|
|And here it is again. The bush that thinks it's a tree (aka sambucus nigra Black Beauty) which just keeps on fighting back year after year. It's such a survivor, I don't want to get rid of it despite its size and, if I ever have to, I will first take cuttings, buy a huge pot and keep it in that, where it can grow much more to its heart's content.|
|I ought to know this but can't find the name in my brain. A cutting from mum last year, it's taken very well!|
Edited: Thanks Annabeth - it's a euphorbia!
And finally . . .
|This is what I wanted . . . (with leaves, of course)|
|. . . and this is what the plant wanted . . .|
There's no doubt who has won that particular argument, is there? Darn it!!!
