Wishing a very Happy Birthday and many happy returns to coming42, the oh-so-nearly a VE Day baby.
By which I mean, plants in the garden which I haven’t planted. From the left: fern, Tellima grandiflora, Solomon’s Seal. The pink flowers in the background are Herb Robert. These all grow at the base of a hedge, so don’t interfere with my cultivated plants. I’m lucky with the Solomon’s Seal, which I’ve always loved (my mother grew it). In my old garden, the leaves were shredded every single year by the filthy maggots of gooseberry sawfly. Here, no problem.
