Joy Division

Not content with the joy of the wisteria which was shown yesterday, the garden is full of many other joys which it would be selfish to keep to myself – like the newly purchased patio pots, replanted in our cubic lead effect tubs alongside a pot of diascia grown from seed last year or the year before, shown above, or the froth of allium and aquilegia below:

Having added lots of additional allium last autumn, it is not surprising that they are popping up in pleasing combinations throughout the garden, like in the bold borders where a dark purply blue aquilegia blends perfectly with A Purple Sensation and splashes of red from Papaver orientale and Eschscholzia ‘Red Chief’:

They form a great contrast when seen against Geum ‘Totally Tangerine’ too…

…and with the red and yellow aquilegia, Geum ‘Prinses Juliana’ and cerinthe, with about-to-burst-forth honeysuckle:

As the heucheras fill out, this bronze bed around the Acer griseum begins to fulfil its brief:

Last but not least, are the joys of the rose garden: Zépherin Drouhin, Guinée and Madame Alfred Carrière … what more can I say? It is a pleasure to share the joy of these and the other visual sights of the garden, but sadly I can’t share the divine fragrances that are wafting through it…
