A Nursery, a work in progress.


Not much to say today except it is blowing a gale and pouring with rain.
I went this morning before the bad weather started and took a few more pics. Dropped some compost off too but then the weather changed and that was the end for me I’m afraid.
Yesterday 21degrees and sunny as hell, today 6 degrees and wet, cold and windy.
I do love our summer.

I am hoping someone can name this plant as I don’t know what it is. Looks similar to Red hot Poker but I don’t believe it is.

Some day lillies to be cleaned of weeds. A task and a half but as they are outside or in the shaded tunnel I wasn’t going to get soaked today I’m afraid.

While it’s raining I think I might see if I can see what the colours might be from the names in the pots.
That is subject to the names being in the right pot I suppose.

Maybe the white flowered plant is an Asphodelus albus,

Thanks Siris, Owdboggey thought similar but I have to see if it smells like onions. It's bent because it's pot was laying down till last week. It might look different if it was straight.

Thanks Steragram. It's so peaceful there unlike here under the Heathrow flightpath. Only 10 minutes away too.
