In Flower!

Aquiligias, I have loads and loads of these scattered all round the garden

My Alliums are doing well this year

Whilst out at a garden centre the other day I saw a 'pyramid' of geraniums, in the most beautiful colour red. Quite pricy too. I have never been a big fan of them but they looked so spectacular.
When I was in good old Wilkinsons the other day I found some trailing geraniums of just the right colour red, so bought four and pooped them in my chicken old feeder!

This is a new plant in my jungle garden Camassia leichtlinii 'Sacajawae' how you pronounce it I haven't the faintest idea. I think it will look good!

Good old clematis, I wish I could get a passion flower to grow here it would look really great, but sadly a bit exposed!

I am thrilled to bits with my arum lily, I bought this clump for a £5 at a plant sale chucked it in the pond and ignored it, magnificent. I might have to see if I can split it later in the year cos I think this would look good in the jungle too!

Iris in the pond.

Have you seen the iris on Chelsea Flower Show I may have to see about getting some of them!

Theres lots more in flower in my garden, but I didn't want to over do it, I mean 2 posts in one week, mmmmmmmmm mustn't get carried away!


  1. I really like Aqualegias, they are so dependable :-)

  2. Hi Libby Columbines look good anywhere, don't they? They are just so reliable.

    Love that new plant for the jungle garden.....that is gorgeous.

    Arum lily.....never thought about putting them in the pond. Mine are in the bog garden.....I think the pond is a lovely idea, and might just do that.

  3. Lovely red geraniums, I must get some...we don't have many flowers in our little garden, it has been eaten up by the polytunnel and veg growing, but I'm trying to smuggle a few in, just for variety. I'll never match your standard though!

  4. I haven't had a ny luck with columbines... I think I planted them in the wrong place, the soil was too dary and not enough nutrition in it.
