Pretty things

It's not all endless slog at Bag End, sometimes there are pretty things too:

The ever beautiful Gertrude Jekyll

Unfashionable and utterly gorgeous!  Hope these gladioli bulbs make it through the winter.

Verbena bonariensis, competing with the crab apple for Plant of the Month and very popular with butterflies and bees.

    1. Cheers Sue, must take more pictures because they're still in flower, five weeks later.

  2. Oh, those glads are wonderful!! I don't believe I've ever seen any just like them. I love your trellis/arbor. Since mine looks almost exactly like it, I wonder why??

  3. Gorgeous glads, I have species The Bride,only.


Thank you for leaving comments, I love receiving them; sometimes they are the only way I know I am not talking to myself . . . 😊
