It was a pleasure to look around SL. Last year's rain probably done your Corydalis a bit of good. It is a lovely colour. My Pere David is just flowering and so should have the purple leafed on. It was new a few weeks ago. As I was planting it out - if fell from my hands and the whole thing kinda fell apart. I managed to plant up 4 individual pieces, so we shall see what happens!
I do like that Oxalis. Are the invasive SL?

Thanks Scottish, yes your probably right about the corydalis, fingers crossed for your pere David, this oxalis is not invasive but it is slightly tender so worth brining in at winter.. :-)

Thanks Steragram :-)

Thanks Louisa :-)

Your aquilegias are gooooorgeous!! I love these flowers; so undemanding, so generous in self-seeding, so many-hued, so slug - proof. What's not to love?

Thanks Tuesdaybear. I agree very lovely undemanding plants :-)
