Garden Chronicles : Crocosmia, Hollyhock and Veronica

T Minus 33

So glad I got to see this plant before we leave. One of my favourite summer plants is Crocosmia. I love the vibrant orange flowers against the lush green vegetation. Elsewhere we have Veronica with it’s spiky purple spires and the tallest flower in the garden the Hollyhock – self seeded purple flowers adorning a 6ft stalk.20140720-163641-59801636.jpg20140720-163639-59799860.jpg

Garden chronicles – Lavender, Rose and Hollyhock

T minus 55

The garden is beginning to burst forth in a variety of colours. For my own memories I am chronicling the various blooms which will soon fade into distance. Earlier this week I posted from the back garden. This post is taken mainly from the front, 20140628-085721-32241183.jpg
