Twilight after Rain

We have had some really heavy downpours over the last few days, but the garden has rewarded me with some lovely lush photos. Taken last evening about 9-00.

Image

     Actually a view of the summer house but you wouldn’t know it . An unnamed Acer in the background, Hemerocallis citrina very fragrant, and Filipendula ulmaria ‘Aurea’, with a dierama to follow later in the summer.

Image

          The rill that joins the two ponds, looks like a river but it’s only about 40 cms wide.

Image

         A wallflower linking with the Papaver rupifragrum ‘flora plena’, Plant World seeds.

Image

                     Lady watching over the fish in the top pond.

Image

        Astrantia ‘Shaggy’, ‘Roma’, and Heuchera ‘Greenfinch’, under the sundial.

Image

       Heuchera, Iris Sibirica,and Euphorbia with a resent addition of a mixed lettuce edging, probably going to be snail food !

      Hope you all have a good Bank Holiday weekend and manage to get out in your gardens……

Dark Matter

Today things seemed to have taken a turn in the garden.

New leaves are unfurling everywhere and the ground is erupting with the promise of summer abundance.

Image

           Peony ‘Molly The Witch’

Always the first peony to flower here and so welcome.

Image

            Fritillaria Imperialis.

Always have to watch for lily Beetle.

Image

        Epimedium Warleyense

 A lovely spring ground cover, with leaves tinged purple/red.

Image

            Euphorbia Amygdaloides ‘Purpurea’

Not to everyone’s liking as it can spread, but the spring colour is stunning.

Image

         Saxifraga Fortunei’Rubrifolia’

  Glossy, always healthy, green leaves with a deep maroon underside. An impressive plant all through to autumn.

Image

         Acer….now unknown as I cut the original down and this is the graft that grows. I like it much better.

Image

          A seedling Auricula not a good specimen, but I will keep it all the same.

I always get such a buzz from seeing all the new growth in the spring, it’s almost worth going through the winter for it….
