I’ve never seen my Bearded Irises as tall; ideal for the cyclone we are promised! I do hope the 50 and 60 km per hour winds that has been mentioned doesn’t materialize.
Hopefully the stems are stronger than they look and will sway but not break, only time will tell.
I was wrong about the name of this gorgeous Iris
This isn’t ‘Hoist the Sails’ as I stated the other day
The friends who gave me this Iris don’t have the name so have called it Madrid (where it was purchased I think) Mother of the Bride (Kate Middleton’s mother’s wedding hat!)
I find pollen beetles in lots of flowers, mostly they seem to love yellow flowers, this one didn’t survive long after I took the photograph.
Rosa ‘Molineux’ is the biggest favourite of the pollen beetles and the yellow breaded irises next to it, but strangely not the yellow Dutch Iris
Iris ‘Rustic Jewel’
Love this with the Purple foliage of Cotinus and Sedum and silvery foliage of an Artemisia.
I. ‘Immortality’ with some bright Californian poppies
The Large Island
Eschscholzia californica Thai silk series
The slope, the rounded forms are becoming solid shapes now
I may try to establish some small trees to give some change of height.
I’m pleased with this Cistus that I grew from a cutting; the parent plant is now dead so I’m even more pleased to have this.
Rosa mutabilis hedge
Some of you were kind enough to admire the Rosa mutabilis when I showed it the other day. Here’s how the hedge looks.
I hope you’re enjoying your weekend.
