Front gravel bed.
I didn't plant any of these sedums they all seeded themselves. Great to get help in the garden!

See how the flame creeper(Tropaeolum speciosum) has shot up through the trees. This was a root I planted last year.

The passion flower has started to open and there are many more buds to come.

This is the orange Alstroemeria that was planted 8 years ago. Even Mary Waldron said she is still struggling to get rid of this plant in her garden. It is a lovely cut flower and lasts well. Anyone who would like a clump of it can come and collect!

Small Angels Fishing Rod
Three friends and I went to Boyce, Moanwing and Terranova gardens in Limerick (www.limerickgardentrail.com
). They were all wonderfull gardens to see. Terranova was a treasure! Deborah(from Terra Nova) had my unknown plant !

Can anyone tell me what this is?
We had a fantastic trip to the Alpine garden at Lissadell House Sligo (well worth visiting) last Saturday and I saw my unknown flower there. The staff member in the garden couldnt tell me what it was. Here is a better picture. The flowers are like minature foxgloves but the leaves are long and narrow like Penstemon leaves.

New veg patch
I was given inspiration from all the veg growers on garden.ie. Where the 3 large spruce were chopped I planted cabbage, parsnip, carrot and turnip. I haven't planted veg since 1990's.
