Rossion's Garden

'my garden' is a partial side-section of my parents house's south facing back garden. I have the west middle section  on which i have  11 times yearly grown succesfully potatoes , and into which I have recently introduced 2 Conferene pear trees; due to lack of concentration on my part when reading up how pear trees - even self-fertile ones- yeild much better with a partner, i however bought two of the same variety Conference which won't cross pollinate! I also have planted (and to my delight it is doing very well) an apple tree (Katy variety) . There are two perennial plants whose identity I am not sure of. They were present in the garden when the family moved in 30years ago. Traditionally, my mother has called them 'stink-horns' and they do produce a funnel that may be a carnivorous function, but i'm not sure. They are extremely hardy and will grow anywhere in the garden if the bulbs are transplanted.(you will see some images of them in my photo album).
