Looking at the world through Rose Tinted Glasses
This is planted in my WHITE bed. I was delighted when I got it. Rosa Iceberg. Had wanted it for ages. It is blooming now and is a beautiful rose, However either I am looking at it with rose tinted glasses or somebody got their labels mixed up because from my perpspective it definitely looks pink - So no idea what it is :-(

Philadelphus Coronarius - Mock Orange
Early spring 2011 I planted a tiny little Philadelphus Coronarius in the main bed in the middle of the back garden. It did nothing!!!! I thought it was dead. It is in the middle of the bed as I was hoping it would grow to a decent size- ha! When my sister was up we went looking for it as I wanted her to see if it was worth keeping - we couldn;t even find it amongst the masses of other stuff coming up BUT look what I discovered yesterday!!!! The plant itself is only about 1ft high and 6" of it is covered in flowers.
We had a huge one in the front garden of the house I grew up in "Borodale". I was just mad about it. Everytime I smell it- It just brings me right back. Happy times :-)
I am just DELIGHTED!!!

Cant find the name.....
This has just started to bloom in the garden. It is such a pretty flower. I can't find the name. It is beside me everytime I get out of my car and is bugging the life out of me - So if you know please tell :-)
