How luck is Pauline :)
All looks great Brian. You know I only discovered today that my brother has 3 of those Azalea luteal in his garden. Way too many ;) I might have to trade!
I see Jamie has taught Peter well :)

You need a ladder to photograph P.Lutea it is very tall.

The maple was a birthday present last year and the colour was underwhelming but improved considerably this spring, the GC where it was bought have an artificial shade area and wonder if that had some bearing on last years poor colour. Just thinking out a loud.lol
As for Pauline's view that is east and cold in winter.

Susan is one that is easy to find as small plants in Autumn, Wilkinsons, B&Q, Homebase as well as larger ones in G.C .it grows quite fast.

Dotty, all my Married life 54 years but what is the woodland area was a separate purchase about 35 years ago.

A REAL GARDEN.

More spectacular views of your beautiful plants Bjs. I laughed when I saw the unknown fern. Am I going mad or does it bear a resemblance to Jamie. I'm not going to choose a favourite as I love them all.

A carnival of colours,Brian.....beautiful plants.

13 May, 2014

 

Thanks for the info Brian, went out today but couldn`t get `Orange dream` so settled for `Sango-kaku` looks similar in colour, just put it on my photos. Shall still look for Orange dream tho.

Beautiful plants - Brian - such colour - we have been down to Malvern this weekend - I bought a pink lily of the valley similar to the one in your picture - I had not seen one that colour before - Jane

Smashing photographs ..

I love the ferns and the M. Susan, not to mention the P. lutea and A. lutea. Fabulous Spring colour.

Scotsgran I can see where you are coming from it has that unkempt scraggy look.

13 May, 2014

 

I think 'busy looking' Bjs.

13 May, 2014

 

Ah - "busy looking" - I like that! But I quite like "unkempt" as well. I don't think "scraggy-looking" applies here!

I love the pink convallaria. My white ones are suddenly intent on world domination after a decade of good behaviour. Some more offerings for my sister's garden, I think.

The pink ones are doing the same they must have travelled a long way underground last year.

Have you ever tried to dig them up, Brian? The roots of mine are like old underlay! (Matted felt!)
