I have to enjoy the bloom so three photos of it.
The Chinese Tree Peony put out a second flower.This is much paler and looks like some raspberry ripple ice cream.I wander if has been crossed with two plants and this flower is reverting back to its parents flower?
It closes at night its pale pink cup, and then opens again during the day. I needed patience for this plant too. It is third year lucky!
The Alium Everest is blooming under the Ceanothus.I needed to move it out to photograph it as it is growing right into the shrub above it!I must move the bulb once it has finished flowering, and the seed head has dried off.
The Aliums are beautiful plants with their firework explosion flowers. They rise above the sunken border and seem very centred this year. In previous years they have fallen over as they are so top heavy.
The Rhododendron Sappho has opened all the flowers now. It is a pretty compact bush and I love the colours on the flowers.
The Geranium has bloomed away madly.It regrows from the ground and bursts into life. The electric blue flowers glow in the evening.
The Geranium Rozanne was voted the plant of the Century at the Chelsea flower show. I love the exuberance of the flowers and how many flowers bloom at the same time.
I have little time left now to garden. A few greenhouse plants need re potting. I may do it in the mornings after my night shifts.I will be on my way to London Heathrow next week.
Snappys gardens blog will be in New Zealand for two and a half weeks. The camera will travel, and I should be able to blog from my Sisters house.
The garden is so lush and full of flowers, new green leaves, and wild life.I'm sure it will survive but I will wander whats flowering.
