Some More Pictures from the Garden...

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)

Helianthemum 'Annabel'

Hopefully I will get around to some lengthier posts, including a new Plant Care Profile, in the coming days.


  1. Beautiful blooms! Great that you had the chance to enjoy them and take photos
    I am also growing that scabiosa on my garden, it is looks very nice.

  2. beautiful! i particularily like the 'love in a mist'. are your parents thrilled with the transformation in their garden? :)
