Just a stroll in my garden before I went on a bike ride today

I wish I had charged my camera for longer.

But here are some photos anyway.

Peris but think something is eating leaves.

Shirley Temple Peony Rose

Think this is Sarah Benhardt it never bloomed last year but this is where it was planted.

Love the trillium. I've never seen one for sale. Well done for being energetic enough to go cycling. Nicer than what I was doing - washing, ironing, scrubbing the kitchen floor...

My local GC over the yrs has sold trilliums and thats where I bought them.

I would much prefer to pay for a well establised trillium than try to get seeds to germinatre.

A few yrs ago I bought trillium seeds from Cluny Gardens.

And the seeds never germinated.

The trilliums are lovely. It looks as if Sarah Bernhardt is going to flower this year!

Great pictures Kath. Sarah B. is looking very promising with that big fat bud!
I think it's vine weevil damage on the pieris leaves.

I do envy you your trillium Kath, there on my never ending list.

Stroller I don't know how easy or if you can split trilliums that I would give you a piece.

I shall need to do a bit of research as I would like to give a piece to the walled garden.
