Last lot of garden...

For the final time this week we go round the garden once again.  Penstemons feature again along with some other lovelies!

Thank you Ellie for the confirmation yesterday that the mystery plant is a phygelius.  As soon as I read your comment I remembered what it was called.  Silly isn't it how we can forget plant names!



Straight into the penstemons!  So so so pretty!



These aren't tiny - or large! - apples although they look a bit like them - they are berries on the Rowan Tree which, as you can see, are starting to turn red already.  How can that be!




The hostas are doing really well.  There are some holes here and then, but not too many at all, especially considering that we haven't taken any anti slug measures other than a very healthy mulch of shredded bark.








I love this huchera, the colours are gorgeous, if there was space I would have more of these.



The rain has prevented the geraniums from flowering much, but the leaves are beautiful colours.  I choose the ones with pretty leaves as even if they don't flower you still have something pretty to look at.






The day lilies haven't done much this year so far apart from this plant.  Lots of leaves, not many flowers.  I think it might be that they need dividing.








A last little lavender to leave you with!


Thank you for coming around the garden with me.  It has been a delight to share it with you!

  2. Your garden is gorgeous and I envy the fact it's "flat". Is that a rhubarb in the timber bordered garden in the 2nd last photo? Thanks for the tour and take care.

  7. Very pretty I like the addition of some raised beds. Gives it more interest and eye appeal. Quite nice.

  9. Your garden is looking lovely Amy and as always so neat and tidy, mine is like a wilderness! I love penstemons but mine must have perished in the winter because there's no sign of them this year. I haven't even managed to get to my hostas I need to cut through the jungle to get to them, I fear they will be in a poor state because I haven't done a thing to protect the from the snails and slugs this year I may just seek them out this weekend. :) xx

  10. Hi Amy! Oh, your garden and plants are just beautiful! Isn't it amazing how we can ask our fellow bloggers almost anything and we'll get an answer! We have been traveling and went to Canada and in one little town they were having a lavender festival! Thanks so much for popping in to see me.
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  11. You have many lovely types of flowers with which I am not familiar, Amy. I have just scrolled through all your photos in the last three posts...enjoying them again. I really like Hostas and have yet to grow any. Today at the local garden shop they had a sale on deep purple Petunias and I bought six to fill in some gaps here and there in our garden. Thanks for posting! xx
