This week's plants

Potentilla moonlight - well named - from a cutting from someone's garden - first time its flowered

Alium - not quite fully out but I'm an impatient gardener.

Who knows the name of this plant? I did once.

Its a rose - ask me another;)

The flower stalks on that plant look like salvia, but the foliage is different. Your rose is a beautiful color combination.

Lovely garden Pat, and very nicely stocked. It's a grand time of year for gardens (and gardeners).

Mike and Ann said...

P.s. The flowers look like stocks, but the leaves don't.
Sorry, don't know. Cheers, Mike.

Judy: no not salvia. I know what it is - just can't remember the name. Help may be at hand (Kevin).

Mike and Ann: it's a good year I think. Thank you.
If Kevin pops round he will know.

I shall claim not to, just for spite. (-:

Sisyrinchium, the blue-eyed grass. Rather nice.

My place is an embarrassment of herb Robert, willow herb and horsetails.

Kevin: nay Kevin lad - tha's not got enuff spite to put a match out.
Thanks for that. I think it's quite delicate.
I like the mix of wild with cultivated. I could never get rid of my wild flowers - even if I wanted to.
