Virginia Creeper – autumn is on the way
Rose – so fragile
Hylotelephium spectabile (a sedum – we think this one is known as the Ice Plant)
Sedum spectabile – as above, but the more popular sedum
Unidentified – we thought this might be Ginkgo Biloba, but it isn’t; it also isn’t Japanese Knotweed (thank goodness!), though it does look suspiciously similar in some respects; we’ll keep investigating – suggestions welcome!
Japanese Anemones – just keep on blooming …
Foxglove – Spring flower? – nonsense!
Garden spider – constant tweaking
And now we’ve embarked on a new project, to restore Lynn‘s Dad‘s garden to its former glory. There’s going to be a lot of hacking, chopping, pruning and shredding going on … more news later!
Garden restoration 1
Garden restoration 2
Garden restoration 3
Rose (1) – all the roses in our new house are as yet unidentified 😦
Twisted Willow (before pruning)
Twisted Willow (after pruning)
Lavender, Pansies and Petunias
Japanese Anemone – staring through dining room window …
Penstemon – earliest flower, many more to come
Bee on Echinops
Bee on Lavender
Buddleia – grows like a weed, but butterflies love them, of course
Butterfly – this rather “moth-eaten” Red Admiral often suns itself on our table, frequently chasing off a Cabbage White – they twist and turn together in the air, but the Red Admiral always wins
Courgette (1) – have to grow our veg. in pots/growbags in our new garden
Cucumber – getting a fantastic crop, just grown in a growbag in a sunny spot on the potting table (var. Telegraph Improved)
