Great day in the garden, planted out all the delphiniums I grew from seed last year, did a little weeding and feeding (but didn’t get through my list, mainly as I took a break to go to a plant fair!). Here are six lovely flowers for Saturday:
I love this flower, the petals are so delicate and the colours striking – but it’s a strong self seeder.
My son bought me this sweet iberis last year – how nice of him I hear you say, but the truth is that he was left to water the garden for a week last June and he didn’t do a good job! Needless to say, I lost a few newly planted specimens – I didn’t have to tell him to replace though, he did go shopping voluntarily!
Lovely hardy geranium, flowers from May to October, makes a very neat, large clump and does not self seed!
Paper thin blossoms on this gorgeous sweet pea – I’ve lost the packet and so can’t identify it (really must improve my greenhouse organisation skills).
This vigorous strong scented rambling rose was planted many years ago – you’ve guessed it, I have no record of it’s name – would be grateful if it could be identified!
Finally, another sweet scent from this floriferous broom, planted conveniently near a bench. I’ve had to stake it firmly due to the weight of the flowers.
