A list as the widget linking plantings to journal seems to be down.
The second flower on Clematis Not Niobe – the plant itself is looking less than healthy.
Sweet William which I haven’t grown before and therefore pleases with an abundance of flower heads at least half in bud and flowers of different colours even though I thought I had bought only two plants.
Albanian ? Pinks beginning to flower, flowering also in Beyond the Pale which is completely neglected. I am thinking that I might move the rose in Beyond the Pale which survives despite appalling conditions into the west end of Shade where the little evergreen I planted last year is dying.
Foxglove, self-seeded in House, there is another about to flower in Shade. Some plants doing not much in Shade and a row of them on the other side of the fence in the parking area!
Astrantia in East.

    Maybe I am missing it above but what is the flower in your final image? It looks really interesting.

    Very pretty blooms. I’m becoming a big fan of pinks as perennials.
