August 2010

Untended during the holidays my garden is looking a little scruffy.
Not to worry though, two weeks spent on the North Norfolk coast have given me a renewed appreciation for nature ‘in the wild’ and in any case plenty has prospered in my absence.

Acid-yellow, cone-like flowers ofHumulus lupulus ’Aureus’ are hanging in thick clusters on the vine that covers our tall dividing fence and further along,Clematis tangutica is bright with drooping, yellow, lantern-like flowers and whirls of fluffy seed-heads.
The borders are dominated by tallHelianthus salicifolius ‘Lemon Queen’ and arching clumps of Crocosmia x crocosmiiflora ‘Citronella’ originating from a single pot bought for me as a gift many years ago on a happy day visiting The Garden House.
Isn’t this the reason our gardens become so dear to us ~ treasured as much for the memories they hold as for the plants they contain?
