The tidying up is going slowly and so I thought today should be more about enjoyment – isn’t that what this is about?
1.I enjoy red and the Bergenias ‘Abendglut’ and ‘Silberlicht’ are both starting to reward me, alongside Sedum ‘Autumn Joy’. The sedums came from Beth Chatto before she was a household name, and possibly the white bergenias as well.
2.Yellow always makes me feel cheerful and so I am enjoying the yellow leaves of the Roseraie de L’Haye and the seed heads of the Stipa Gigantea.
3.And I love the Red-Gold in the leaves of the Canary Bird, seen against the light.
4.The seed heads of the Japanese Anemones continue to provide pleasure.
5.The Silvers in the Curry Plant and the Euphorbia remind me of the winter to come.
6.And finally, I love the bottle brushes of Penisetum!
And around all that enjoyment I have cut down, composted, and planted a tub of bulbs! I hope to find favour with The Propagator!
