Thought I would give you a tour of the garden in bloom at present.
Lupins are doing well, behind is a Potentilla just coming in to flower and a newly planted Cistus is doing well in front. That corner is very sandy as it is the edge of sand horse menage that used to be the back garden!
We moved this peony about 18 months ago and it has taken that long to get established and this year is covered in buds just coming out.
Aquiliga are spreading through the bed now. Nice variety of colours.
My husband grew loads of foxgloves last year and this year we have several really good clumps in bloom.
This lavender plant is going mad. It is in one of those decorative chimneys which you cant see underneath. I did cut a lot off over the winter and it has regrown a lot.
