Patty's Plum is one of my favourite oriental poppies and I love how a self sown euphorbia is nestling next to it, a perfect colour combination by pure chance!
The roses are just starting to open, this one is Lady Emma Hamilton and has a delicious fruity scent.
Even the plants in the densely shaded bed are doing well. Lots more self sowns here, all the aquilegias have arrived by themselves, as has the purple heuchera peeping through them. I generally leave self sowns, especially in areas like this that are difficult to find plants for.
More Patty's Plum dot their way through this bed on the way down to the pond.
And in the greenhouse the tomatoes are doing very well., some even have a few flower trusses on!
Cup of tea anyone?
