June Garden

This part of the garden was looking pretty yesterday morning, so I took a not very good picture of it. I need a wide angle lense. And better picture hosting on LJ.

I love astrantias and this one was a bargain last year from the nursery sale at the garden centre. It’s Astrantia ‘Princess Sturdza’. Background foliage Lysimachia ‘Alexanders’. In front Teucrium scorodonium ‘Crispum’.

These cosmos are brighter than they look in the picture.

Gladiolus colvillei ‘The Bride’. So dainty. It doesn’t flower for long but takes up hardly any space, so earns its keep.
