Anchusa royalist though is not a new plant but a beautiful one.  

Currently I don't grow it because its not reliably perennial for me. Two years at most .....will have to propagate it regularly to keep it.



Ahh, but its new to ME Verdun, and in my egotistical world, thats all that matters

I have a Cath Kidston garden kneeling mat - no wonder my mojo is always mis-directed, and never quite finds its way inside.  

Rose - there is hope - in about 10 years time you will find it hard to get LO's out of bed before noon

Weeding planned for later - plus lots of looking at what has grown in my absence...  Looking is such an important bit of gardening, it needs to be done slowly and thoroughly, accompanied by mugs of tea.

Looking great Wintersong - you would never know a fence man had just been at work ( apart from the different coloured fence panels) - you must have persuaded him to be very careful (was it cake or dire threats that did the trick??).  Love that rose and your scabious - maybe room for another poppy in there somewhere - they obviously like it in your garden
