The main herbaceous borders are planted in a haphazard cottage style. The borders either side of the bower are about 10 feet deep. Many of the new plants come from the secret garden stand . At three for just £1.00 they are a bargain as they are always good strong plants.
This past couple of weeks I’ve been drawn to gaze at this wonderful combination – pink Aquilegia that reminds me of giant shrimps (I have a passion for sea food) and a pretty white perennial which shares similar leaves to a phlox but has a wonderful almost lazy wildness. Tall blue and white lupins stand behind them and the last of the forget-me-nots and bluebells bloom and at their feet.
Danny is intrigued by my trips to pay homage.
“I saw you looking at your border again this morning.”
Living things change a little everyday. Each journey to the border is a revelation and the pleasure just breathes a bit deeper every time. I know that by next month the flowers will have faded and another combination might seduce me but for now I’m delighted to dive in here every morning and evening.
I’ve been trying to discover the name of the white flowered perennial.
Does anyone out there recognise this plant? Can you put a name to a beautiful face for me?
