Yes that is Thalictrum aquilegifolium the white flower. The bought scones were very good. It is lovely to have visitors on such a good day. They remembered having tea in the lounge last year when it was so wet when they came! I think they were very surprised to hear an 88 year old tell them of her plan to replant her yellow flowered rhododendron in the autumn next to her purple flowered one as they would look so good together. But then every gardener's motto should be "Live every day as if it is your last but garden as if you will live forever"
Here are the flowers the visitors remarked on which i do not give a second look to normally being so used to them every year!
The visitors brought the summer with them. We al enjoyed ourselves and they went home clutching a pot of parsley for their kitchen - suits everyone as some live in flats without gardens.
Too hot to put the cooker on for fresh scones so popped to the shops so my visitors can still have them - will have to be a Devonshire cream tea as it says devonshire scones on the packets! They couldd not have picked a better day!
Liked the change of abode then!
Up in the garden today.
Reading your posts had me checking my dates on the calendar. My open day is tomorrow! The appalling news from Manchester has driven everything else out of my mind however. So many people caught up in a wave of horror and sadness. Cannot imagine what the surviving children who were there are suffering now.
Here are some of the colourful flowers in my garden this morning.
Good morning GWRS. Beautiful day in Bristol too. I have a ladies club visiting my garden on Wednesday so will be busy in the garden which is a picture so full of flowers.
The yellow flowers are rhododendron and poached egg plant. weigela at the back and white allium triquetrum (a weed0. The blue of Cerinthe major cools it all down.
