A little cactus that keeps on blooming.

My hosta garden/woodland in its new location (shrunk to a small fraction of its former glory) Lots to do yet.

One unique plant that got moved…wonder what it is. Does anyone know?

This was one of the several roses, banished to "the alley of shame" (the drive at the side of the house), by my wife, she dislikes red roses. this one was bought under false pretences years ago, as it should have been white. But every year it performs well and if it's a bit breezy "waves at her through the kitchen window."

What this one did to deserve to be banished, I've no idea. I like it.

More blooms on "the Rose Patio."

David Austin, "Sceptered Isle."

P1050244.JPG


No idea about this one, the label has long disappeared

P1050245.JPG


A perennial favourite, "McMillan Nurse."

P1050246.JPG




"Timeless Purple."

"Peachy"... Doesn't look like that.

I'm pleased with the spread of this euonymus, which I encouraged with several wires. Two years ago there was a three foot gap in the middle where we'd had a huge conifer taken down. You can still see the base of the tree trunk on the top of the rockery.

Last showing of these clematis.

The tortoise shell rhodo is nearly out, contrasts with a newer one.

Ou sambucus in its big tub never lets us down. Always a good show of flowers. It makes a nice central feature.

Tetter's first thought was Astrantia major, she said she'll have a look later :)
Thanks Zigs for the info, and I love your cactus blooms. Only in recent years have I seen cactus that bloom available here.

a few pics from the yard. First the flowering weeds

It is baby’s tears or soleeirolia soleirolli. A great ground cover in the shade to partial sun that is a low mat. Does great in my temperate climate with small and medium hostas.

My only planter this year that isn’t created from plants out of the garden. Every time I went to the nursery to look for fillers for pots I saw planters filled with greenery I am having to pull as I dismantle the old woodland garden. Needless to say the prices felt exorbitant so I walked away with nothing. This was my last empty pot to fill.

nice to use plants from the garden!

all my pots are filled with annuals from the garden center, fortunately my long-time account gets me a discount.

I do have 2 hydrangeas in the big square containers that seem to have over wintered pretty well, maybe we'll see some good blooms this summer.
