The wet weather has encouraged the plants to put on a lot of growth and it is all looking rather green and luscious. Above is Clematis Crystal Fountain which is looking very flamboyant.
The blowsy clematis contrasts well with the understated elegance of this aquilegia (I don't know the variety).
This one is supposed to be 'Navy and White', but appears to have turned pink. I do like it, despite it not being blue!
Here's one of my newest plants, Magnolia 'Fairy Blush' which has such pretty flowers. It is supposed not to get too massive, can be pruned and is meant to be really hardy. I'm impressed so far - how could I not like those flowers?
Really pretty delicate colours. I also have a white/cream one, but it only has leaves as it is a younger plant.
The tulips have been beautiful this year and I have already put in my order for next year! Although most of them are now over, Red Shine continues to give a splash of colour which offsets all the green so well. Chris said how much he liked these particular ones (just as well, because I have ordered more!). Although there is quite as bit of dodging showers for us, the plants are loving it and I am looking forward to seeing what flowers next.
