It would be boring if we were all the same" ...

Lovely colours and all looking so healthy. I wish I could remember what my plant names are. Can you not nip around and draw me a map of my garden?

Saw Beth Chatto being interviewed at Chelsea.....was it yesterday? Love visiting her garden near Colchester. Last time we were there, I bought her signed book 'Dear friend and gardener'. I also bought Spotlight Heuchera too. She is such a clever gardener. Lovely arrangement near your front door TT.

Thanks Bill ...
I have to label my plants or I'd never remember all their names !
I could draw you a map ... please may I use coloured crayons ? ;o)

Thank you, Dorjac ...
Yes, Beth is such an innovative gardener !

Love that red plant at the back,is it broom? Colour mixing is my thing too, particularly with my winter garden in mind, using as many evergreen shrubs as possible so that winter still has lots of colour. Happy gardening.

21 Jun, 2012

 

Hello Singingnanny ...

Thank you. The plant at the back is Cytisus Lena... a broom type of plant.
It has lovely colours.

Yes, I like to include lots of evergreens and winter flowering plants. Makes for a garden with year-round interest :o)

Many of my other photos and blogs feature evergreens, which might give you further ideas. I hope this helps.
