Not yet fully out but I can't wait.

This was new last year and proves Karen's point that you can put a new rose where an old rose has been if you dig deep enough

The gorgeous clematis the girls gave me.

The potato plant it's wrapped around we had given up for dead and its now sprouting all over the place

The sunshine had given me a burst of energy so I'm doing lots of things other than blogging.

Beautiful flowers, Pat. You put me to shame.

That purple flower from a bulb is called triteleia here. I loved using it in bouquets.

Pat said...

Judy; it's one of the rare ones that I can identify and it's always a pleasant surprise when it pops up.

Well as I see it the Potato Plant just need a friend and a hug !

Your garden is lovely.

cheers, parsnip

Pat said...

Parsnip: now I have two - one either side of the arbour so they can keep each other company. If I'd known I'd have got a white one.

Very nice Pat. I don't have room for many flowers after I've planted out all the next years supply of potatoes, greens, onions, carrots, garlic, etc.

Well, you can't eat peonies can you?

Pat said...

Keith: I'm ashamed to say apart from rosemary and bay I don't have anything edible in the garden . Like you I have run out of space. I envy your fresh veg - nothing tastes better. You are the goody.
(For once):)

I love, love, love the clematis. I don't suppose it's much use asking what sort it is?

Pat said...

Eryl: as it is comparatively new I can read the label and it is VYVAN PENNELL.

Even when the flower is over it is still beautiful like Vivien Leigh in 'Streetcar'
