The ultimate: both this year’s best and last.
This flower is pale and frayed in comparison, but it just had to come home after I lifted the tubers for winter storage.

It’s a wild bunch over here. Autumn crocus, lupin and some clover, all vying for that coveted spot in the sun. We don’t have a real plan for our flowerbed, we just accept the unruly mess and plant whatever we can get our hands on. (So I guess that is our plan, ha!)

It’s a winner!!! Its not only the first, but it’s also bright red and fragrant which in my books makes it simply amazing.

Presenting our first ever hollyhock! It sounds ludicrous, but somehow we have been unlucky so far.
