Seed Swaps

Lovely in the garden

11 Jun 2012
Sunny 25°C / 77°F

It was a beautiful day and working in the shade redoing the border of East was perfect. The summer rush to flower and seed is gathering pace. The Aquilegias, Geraniums and Siberian Irises are just beginning and hold pride of place at the moment.

Rose beetles on R.Graham Thomas, I got most of them but a few dropped off before I could catch them. R. Winnipeg Parks is as usual attached by every thing that attacks roses, I think that is mainly because she is succumbing to the stress of age and her position. I feel dreadfully reluctant to dig her up and plant a replacement but… in the Fall maybe… The two new roses are bursting with vigor – lovely.




An exquisitely beautiful aquilegia!…..and the most interesting geranium (’johnson’s blue’) I have ever seen!
