Cinders I love the pink Escholzia, did they come as mixed seeds?

29 Jun, 2011

 

Yes they did Annella. they are so easy to grow too. I just scattered them in my pots.

29 Jun, 2011

 

Cinders you have a smashing selection of roses and looking so healthy too, love the cream escholzia, so different.

29 Jun, 2011

 

Stunning. I very much enjoyed the tour :o)

29 Jun, 2011

 

you must be so proud of your garden Cinders, your photos are just gorgeous,

29 Jun, 2011

 

Wat a lovely selection of roses and flowers you have Cinders, I would love to wander round your garden. What is the yellow leaved plant in the two corner beds, is it a Heuchera? I have a similar plant in my garden and wasn't sure if it was or not.

29 Jun, 2011

 

Beautiful selection of plants there Cinders thank for the tour:)

29 Jun, 2011

 

Lovely flowers, roses and fuchsias and I love the cream californian poppy too!

29 Jun, 2011

 

Thank you all very much for your kind comments, and I am very happy with all my plants. HB the yellow leaved plant I think you are talking about is Heuchera Alabama Sunrise, and you are all welcome to walk around my garden anytime ....

29 Jun, 2011

 

Must get some Escholzia seeds, especially as you say they are easy to grow.
Lovely garden Cinders, all my favourite flowers.

29 Jun, 2011

 

Thank you Sheilar, thats nice.

29 Jun, 2011

 

Thanks Val. I don't think you would be disappointed. there are so many Heuchera in my garden they are taking over now.

29 Jun, 2011

 

Cinders, your heuchera have an abundance of flower stems on them...they must love your garden :) The Escholzia seeds sound like an easy one for me to try out. Glad you put up a photo and recommended them, Cinders.

You've got some gorgeous colour in your garden and the Aloha rose sounds so lovely with it's fragrant scent.

29 Jun, 2011

 

Thank you Jacquie, the Heuchera do seem to like it here. How are yours doing, haven't seen any pictures lately.

29 Jun, 2011

 

Yes, Cinders, I am going to take some piccies tomorrow as I'll be out in the garden planting up the goodies I bought today :)

I've been lax on writing blogs and posting photos...I'll get right onto it, Cinders...lol The grass has just had it's first cut and looks wonderful...so lush and green...very pleased with it. Some of my heuchera are doing very well, a couple are a bit sluggish to fill out but they're still growing, albeit slowly!

Somehow I have 'lost' the honeysuckle cutting you sent me...I am thinking I have mistakingly discarded it when I was gathering up the wrapping...so annoyed with myself!

29 Jun, 2011

 

I'll look forward to seeing your pics tomorrow then J.

I found another honeysuckle self set in the garden if you would like it. Its not very big, about 5 inches high. Wont be offended if you say no.

29 Jun, 2011

 

Love the Gertrude Jekyll rose, Cinders, I really MUST get one !

29 Jun, 2011

 

Lovely blog Cinders so colourful you have some beauties there and that Licorice colour is absolutely stunning.

29 Jun, 2011

 

Cinders....I wouldn't turn down a kind offer of a repeat honeysuckle :) I really could kick myself around the block for losing my first honeysuckle....it would have been growing well now! Thanks, Cinders. x

I'll get a blog and photos up pronto (I'm up way too late as it's now gone 2.30am on Thursday morning!!...I may regret this tomorrow).

30 Jun, 2011

Thanks San, nice to hear from you, hope you are still improving.

1 Jul, 2011

 

There are some beautiful plants in your garden, Cinders. Love the very first Rose, Penny Lane. Thought of you while we were away, saw an enormous dark plum Heuchera in a pot ... lol! : o ))

1 Jul, 2011

 

Hi Shirley, thank you, I am really thrilled with Penny Lane, I just wish it had a nice perfume to it. Didnt you buy that plum Heuchera then ? Hope you feel rested and enjoyed your few days away.

1 Jul, 2011

 

Lol, the Heuchera and it's pot, were huge and in a private garden. They may just have spotted it had gone! We visited some lovely places, will blog about them when I get the chance. : o )

2 Jul, 2011

 

Lovely selection of flowers..They all look so healthy and you must be so happy with them all...

2 Jul, 2011

 

Thanks Bill, yes I am happy with them. I keep wandering around amongst them all, trying not to miss anything. Sad isnt it !!

2 Jul, 2011

 

No it's not sad at all.. I was stood in the garden earlier and tried about 50 shots of one rose to try and get a good picture, that's sad lol

2 Jul, 2011

 

Ha Ha. No not really. Its a lovely interest isnt it, especially when you are on your own, and I talk to them too .......

2 Jul, 2011

 

your garden looks lovely

3 Jul, 2011

 

Thank you Jackie,

3 Jul, 2011

 

I`ve thoroughly enjoyed my wander round you`ve got some gorgious plants. I moved my Aloha this year and it hasn`t flowered anywhere as good as last, perhaps I expected too much so hope it does better next year.

4 Jul, 2011

 

Thank you so much. I hope mine will be ok next year, I am expecting great things !

4 Jul, 2011

 

Hi Cinders...a year later, I find this blog! I think my mystery rose is Gertrude Jekyll. searched all over and found my answer in a GoY friend's garden! Penny Lane is beautiful too... Love your heucheras...and the Escholzia.
Glorious garden.

5 Jul, 2012

 

Thank you so much Lori. I'm glad you sorted your rose out.
