There is so much going on in the garden this month that it is hard to include everything I would like to share. Especially as I don’t want to just show individual blooms, however lovely they may be, you can find those everywhere on the net from the RHS site to the web pages of growers who are selling the plants.
But as I walk around the garden there are combinations and ‘moments’ I would like to share.
Flowering much earlier than in other years Rosa Veilchenblau is doing just what I hoped when I planted her. This is without doubt my favourite rose. I did very carefully tie some branches into the wires on the pergola but those branches have more or less died back; no she will grow and flower where she likes and I will enjoy her where ever that is!

Is there a plant that is capricious in your garden, dying where you want it but thriving just where it wants to thrive?
