The garden is full of precious gems, like the amethyst, rubies and rhodochrosite (tulips Seadov’ and ‘Purple Flag’ and bellis) above, and lapis lazuli (bluebells) below:
Rose quartz (dwarf Rhododendron ‘Snipe’):
Garnets (Persicaria ‘Red Dragon’):
One of many forms of Jasper (Tulip ‘Quebec’):
And the last of this small selection, malachite (Arum italicum ‘Marmoratum’):
There is a whole treasure chest of jewels to be found, but today I have shared just six of them to join with Jon the Propagator’s weekly meme.
