Entering the Back Garden
Here is a view of the entrance to the back garden, taken last Saturday. This is the time when the Celandine Poppies (Stylophorum diphyllum) are finishing their bloom season but the Wild Geranium (Geranium maculatum) is hitting its stride. These two plants dominate the ground level in the beds inside the wooden gate.
Wild Geranium is great for making a low, soft, billowing mass, dotted with white or lavender flowers.
The arbor has the rambling rose ‘Darlow’s Enigma’ on one side and Clematis ‘Ice Blue’ on the other. These are still leafing out. Judy and I laid the brick path ourselves. Moss has been very obliging about filling in between the pavers.
It’s been a very long day and so I am making this a very short post. I’m participating in ‘Wednesday Vignette’, hosted by annamadeit at Flutter and Hum. Click the link for more – trust me, you’ll love it.
