At last my water lily has flowered.

It was planted last year and did its best to form flowers.

Unfortunately they did not open in time and were cut back by the first frosts.

I have fared slightly better this year.

Made a great discovery in a French garden centre this summer.

Check out the size of the blooms on this Newbiscus plant!

My 8-year-old son, Joshua, is showing them off to give an idea of scale. The plant is also supposedly hardy in our clime.

While on holiday in France, I visited the French National Iris collection at the gardens of Brocéliande.

Obviously/unfortunately the irises weren't in flower but I did buy myself a few plants! Here is my youngest, showing them off together with some other spoils!
