It may be grey outside …

… but I have plenty of photographs taken in the garden to brighten up the day, and here are just a few of them:

Digitalis Purprea 'Alba'

One of many visitors to the Allium hollandicum 'Purple Sensation'

One of my favourite Clematis, 'Niobe'


The frilly skirts of a self-sown Aquilegia

An unknown rose with a lovey sherbert scent

Papaver orientalis ‘Patty’s Plum’, now on the wane but still looking good
I’ve so many more pictures but so little time; I hope this keeps everyone interested for now!! And If anyone recognises the rose then I’d be glad to hear from you.




Autumn sown Sweet Peas; and Hellebores in the garden

Things are starting to happen in the garden; more on that at the weekend, but here’s a taster with this lovely Hellebore just about to come into flower:

There are also plenty of Sweet Peas coming on that were sown in late autumn last year. These should make strong plants but in order to try and extend the growing season I sowed some more Sweet Peas last week. The result of all this should hopefully be the soaring stems that you see below:

My wife is picking the Sweet Peas. She is a florist and cut flower grower. Have a look at her work at
