This was taken Wednesday (NOT TODAY!) just to cheer you all up on such a drab night.

I also like Orange!

A great self seeder and so lovely with Purple!

This Geranium always puts on a good show each year, it is a particularly nice purple colour - but then I do like Purple!

This wasn't planned but looking at my Shade Garden today (sure what part of the garden isn't Shade Garden this weather!) you would think I aimed to have a Pink Garden but it wasn't actually planned.  All the Foxgloves have self seeded.  The Teasel at the back is nearly 7 foot, not sure whether to take it up before it seeds everywhere!

 

Papaver 'Royal Wedding'

I bought this at Bloom this year and it's one bud has opened today, it probably won't last too long with the amount of rain out there now!

I love this Sedum, it changes colour during the year and has great foliage even before the flowers come out, would recommend it!

Here is another colour in the Mixed Packet of Seeds, I really like this one, as it is a real 'me' colour!

Clare - when you were at my house a few weeks ago - was it you that said you would like a piece of my Red Lupin?  I should have written it down but I didn't!

Primula Vialii

I absolutely love these Primula.  They are doing particularly well at the moment due to all the wet weather as they hate to dry out.  They flower for ages and always look so grand.

It is raining here again now after a lovely start to the day!

I am sure I should know what this is!

I am sure I should know what this is!

This is growing in my new bed but don't know whether I planted it or what?  I don't even know what it is called - any ideas?

Bloom

I had a lovely day at Bloom on Friday, all on my own!  I had hoped to bump into a few people which I did but not garden.iers.  The weather was perfect!

I loved many of the show gardens, I particularly loved the Viking one (probably because of the Tree ferns!  I loved the planting in the Supergarden and some of the other smaller gardens.

I succumbed to buying a few plants too, some on my wish list and some which I fell in love with there.

I bought Rudbeckia Herbstonne - Autumn Sun and Campanula 'Sarastro' (which I had wanted)

I also got two Lychnis which I had not heard of before - White Robin' which was in a number of the showgardens and 'Splendens' which I fell in love with on a plant stand, I loved the colour and shape of it.

I also got Papaver 'Royal Wedding', and two ferns - Dryopteris erythrosora 'Brilliance' (Brilliance Autumn Fern) and Cheilanthes Tomentosa (Lip Fern) from Shady Plants.

Finally a Gentiana Lutea, I liked the foliage! Does anyone else have any experience of this?
