This is my mini 'Beatrix Potter' garden. New additions are the houseleeks and sedum in the watering-can and some lovely Saxifrage (Arendsii pink) just beneath it. The canes are ready to support the Runner Beans when they're big enough to plant out. This little part of the garden isn't doing too badly considering the treatment it gets from the dogs, which you can see in the photograph below.
Benji Bigfoot chilling out. Does he think he's under an umbrella? The clown!
Aquilegia McKana, one of my favourite garden flowers. I love everything about them.... the ferny delicacy of the leaves, the pretty nodding flowers and the pastel shades are a dream.
Another of my favourite garden plants is the herb Angelica. It's a statuesque plant that can grow up to 6 feet or more. It produces many umbels of tiny frothy creamy-white flowers and the leaves are large and lush. It also is generous in self-seeding and sometimes the seedlings turn up in the funniest of places........
