one of my new resolutions artjak. Currently culling the dirty pink and mauve aquilegias to make way for this year's new ones.. Achillea grandiflora, magnificent, but not when horizontal. Syringa pabaliana (which may be spelled almost like that), lovely flowers, grotty bush. anyone want it? you'll have to collect.

Nut I agree, when I have a moment the horrid purple aquilegia is going, though I think a neighbour might like it.

The syringas in general are lovely in flower but they're a bit skanky when the flowers go aren't they?

Can I have Undulating curves?

That sounds a bit rude

FG - who held the spirit level for your fence rails?? She counts as an under gardener (just don't tell her, as its probably not cool!).  Just read your other posts - think you should build it a bit higher and top it with spikes! Good for you for speaking out - might not have sunk in at the time, but they might be thinking a bit more about that busy road now.

 Verbascum lychnitis, I see there's rather a lot of other plants in this pic 

Macleaya cordata, evening primrose and one of the nepetas, and a Verbena bonariensis in the background. Is that the lot. The verbacum is the white one

We will all be expecting Verdun seeds later in the year.

I can only repeat violas- such pretty things and still flowering their socks off
