Hello me dear, here we are - and late again.
Tiz been a busy month and this is a rather a mammoth post. I started with almost 300 photos to whittle down to a digestible amount. So without further ado come with me for a little troll around the extensive gardens here at 'Delargo Towers'.
But thankfully we still have enough for a display and the scent is divine. Above is a tree lily called 'On Stage'
And we still have 'Lilium speciosum rubrum' yet to flower and that has lots of buds.
Along with my birthday rose I also got two birthday Clematis. this is my fave, 'General Sikorski'
I love 'Comtesse de Bouchard' too but it has not performed as well; maybe next year.
Behind is Petunia Tumbelina 'Sophia' We avoid double flowers as they are not so good for the insects; this was a happy mistake and I will grow it again, it's fab.
Talking of fab, we love our Phlox. It was one small plant when we got it years ago and now (after division) it is three rather large plants
We also have a reclaimed joy with Scaevola ('fairy fan flower' how apt for us you might think) - we first grew it in 2nd incarnation of the gardens of Delargo Towers 6 years ago (we are now in the 3rd incarnation of the garden). We have not grown it since then so are well chuffed to have it back.
Below is Brodiaea 'Queen Fabiola' - we have had these in pots for a few years now and I think they are running out of steam but still look lovely.
My Wine Time corner is so full I can hardly get in - but hey, what do you want, space for plants or people? I say plants!
My passage way has never been so full or smelt so lovely.
Well there tiz me darlin !
Most of the photos were taken mid month and things have gone a bit berserk since then.
I will leave you with an exclusive sneak preview of on the the new stars of our annual Fuchsia review which I post at the end of the year
New to us this year - 'Just Pat'.
There tiz then. Hope you pop back to see us in the garden next time...
