scilla campanulata, muscari, brunnera hadspen cream with anemone nemorosa literally a carpet under the cornus baileyii. also a new(to me)pulmonaria-silver frosted leaves with each flower cluster containing both blues and pinks. a seedling hellebore with darker red flowers than any i have-so many great plants have been the result of accident rather intention. a very fine dianthus which was given to me as carth usianorum is possibly not, this one grows to 1 meter while carthus is 8 inches, hmmm? vitis purpurea is breaking, such a relief when it is something we really want. verbascums are already monumental clumps. physocarpus copperopolis with berberis aurea-i'm trying not to add anything-always a temptation this time of year-until i see what is actually there. have the varieties of geum exploded there the way they have here? such an excellent plant, rudbeckias alos seemingly in every color-what remarkable and lovely times we live in.
