Apart from planting a few new shrubs, including a small oak leaf hydrangea (Hydrangea quercifolia), I have not made much progress in the garden in the last couple of days. This is partially due to the fact that as of last Monday I resumed my usual summer job helping out in some large private gardens nearby. Lots of things are blooming, though, so here are a few pictures:
A pink herbaceous peony (Paeonia lactiflora)
Love-in-a-mist (Nigella damascena)
A white herbaceous peony (Paeonia lactiflora)
Pink evening primrose (Oenothera speciosa) in the front yard
Red valerian (Centranthus ruber)
Pincushion flower (Scabiosa columbaria)
Hopefully I will get around to some lengthier posts, including a new Plant Care Profile, in the coming days.
